Statement by Assemblyman Michael Blake
“Today, we mourn the tragic death of NYPD Officer Miosotis Familia and pray for her family as they cope with this terrible loss. Familia, a mother of three, was a 12 year NYPD veteran who kept our community safe until her life was taken in a horrific manner.
"Senseless acts of violence like this one rock us to our core. No one should be subject to a merciless shooting. Once again, we have a sobering reminder of the need for gun reform, mental health awareness, and improved community and police relations in our country. Nothing should lead to this tragic level of violence. Whether it is an officer or a citizen, we all deserve to go home safely.
"I commend the men and women of the NYPD for their swift response in taking out the assailant before he could cause further harm, and, I pray for the speedy recovery of the bystander who was shot in the exchange of fire.”
