NEW YORK — Gov. Andrew Cuomo has delivered the eulogy for an aide who was killed in the crossfire between two gangs hours before New York City’s West Indian Day parade.
The funeral for Carey Gabay was held Saturday in Brooklyn.
Cuomo said Gabay’s death was a pointless example of rampant violence.
The 43-year-old Harvard-educated lawyer served as first deputy general counsel at the Empire State Development Corp.
Gabay was shot while walking with his brother near the Brooklyn parade route at 3:40 a.m.
Police have not arrested anyone for Gabay’s death. The shooting was one of several outbursts of violence in the neighborhoods surrounding the parade.
