Police are one step closer to finding the suspects responsible for the death of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s aide Carey Gabay, who was fatally shot in September before the West Indian Day Parade in Brooklyn.
The NYPD released photos of four potential suspects wanted in connection with the shooting, NBC4 New York reports. Gabay, a Harvard graduate and Bronx native, was shot in the head after being caught in the crossfire of an altercation between rival gangs. He was taken off life support when doctors declared him brain-dead.
The three men in the photos are suspected to be in their 20s or early 30s. Police are also looking for a young woman believed to be in her teens or early 20s. So far, no arrests have been made.
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and New York City Police Department Commissioner Bill Bratton were scheduled to speak Tuesday about violence at city celebrations.
An advocate for gun control, Cuomo has continued to support national legislation regarding the purchase of firearms. Cuomo delivered the eulogy at the 43-year-old’s funeral, stating, “His death was one of the most tragic, pointless examples of the rampant violence that is spreading like a cancer through our society, especially in our poorer communities and especially in our communities of color.”
