Addabbo comments on off-duty officer shot in Rockaway

“As New York was preparing to lay to rest Police Officer Wilbert Mora — who was shot and killed last month — another cop was shot in Rockaway,” said State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. “Luckily, the off-duty officer survived this horrific ordeal, and the suspects were apprehended by the brave cops of the 100th Precinct. We need to do a better job as a city, state, and nation on keeping guns out of the hands of criminals because we cannot continue to hear stories of our police officers and citizens being shot. I will work with my colleagues in government on all levels to help stop this gun violence.”
