On Friday, August 20, NYS Senator Eric Adams and Councilwoman Yvette Clarke called for a community-wide response to violence. A cash reward has been offered to apprehend the shooter of an 88-year-old man.
Senator Adams’ statement: “Yesterday afternoon, an innocent bystander, an 88-year-old man, was shot. We are calling for the community to mobilize and announcing a reward for apprehension of the shooter.
“This crime can only be solved with the involvement of the community. Responsible members of this neighborhood must have the honesty and moral courage to contact the NYPD with any relevant knowledge. Our streets will only be safe when residents hold criminals accountable by reporting information to the police.”
