Addabbo looks to work with City to curb gun violence as second officer from Friday's shooting dies

“Our fears were realized on Tuesday as Police Officer Wilbert Mora has passed away,” State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. said. “Mora, and his partner Officer Jason Rivera — who was killed on Friday night in the incident that left Mora in the hospital fighting for his life — are true heroes for sacrificing their lives to protect this city. My condolences go out to both officers and their families. I stand with the officers of the NYPD, and with the Mayor of New York Eric Adams, working towards ending gun violence in our city so incidents like this don’t happen again.”
