STATEMENT BY MAYOR BLOOMBERG ON SHOOTING INCIDENT IN JAMAICA, QUEENS
"Although it is too early to draw conclusions about this morning's shootings in Jamaica, Queens, we know that the NYPD officers on the scene had reason to believe that an altercation involving a firearm was about to happen and were trying to stop it. Commissioner Kelly, Deputy Mayor Walcott, and I have been in touch with community leaders throughout the day to hear their concerns and update them on what we know, and we will keep them informed as this investigation continues."
