NY Mayor Eric Adams condemns train attack, seeks end to gun violence

The Mayor of new York City, Eric Adams, has condemned the City's train attack on Tuesday April 12, 2022.

While condemning the attack via his Facebook page on Tuesday, Adams stated the need to end gun violence in the City.

"Killers are using weapons of mass destruction to kill innocent people," Adams said, stressing that ending gun violence means changing gun laws. 

"We cannot clean up a flood when water is still pouring into the basement. We cannot stop until the peace we deserve becomes the reality we experience," he added

"Thank you to our first responders, MTA employees and ordinary New Yorkers who ran into danger to protect our neighbors from violence. Because of your courage and the quick work of our hospitals, we can confirm that none of the victims have life-threatening injuries.

"This is an ongoing investigation and we are working with our state and federal partners to bring the perpetrator to justice. We'll be doubling NYPD officers into the subway as we continue the search," Mayor Adams stated.

He, therefore, called for assistance to apprehend the brains behind the attack. 

"If you have information, please contact 800-577-TIPS," he stated.
