STATEMENT BY MAYOR BLOOMBERG ON THE CAPTURE OF THE THIRD SUSPECT IN THE SHOOTING OF NYPD OFFICERS TIMOSHENKO AND YAN
"On behalf of every New Yorker, I want to commend the excellent work of New York's Finest that resulted this morning in the capture of the fugitive third suspect in the shooting of NYPD Officers Russel Timoshenko and Herman Yan. I also want to express our deep gratitude and thanks to the men and women of the Pennsylvania State Police, the U.S. Marshals Service, and the local Pennsylvania law enforcement agencies that worked so closely with the NYPD, and I especially want to thank the extraordinary individuals whose tips helped lead to these captures. I continue to ask all New Yorkers to pray for Officer Timoshenko, who remains in critical condition. I hope the fact that the suspects are now in custody and on their way to facing justice in New York City will provide some small measure of relief to the Timoshenko family during this terribly difficult time."
