“This was a brazen, coordinated attack, for lack of a better word. This is unacceptable, and it has to stop.”

“There’s just one common theme, I want to get out there, that’s a recurring theme that keeps happening, and it has to stop throughout the city. That’s gang members; that’s guns, multiple guns on the scene, scooters being used, masks; and lastly, unintended targets getting hit. This is unacceptable on our streets in New York City, and it has to stop.”
