MANHATTAN, N.Y. (PIX11) — Mayor Eric Adams on Monday honored FDNY members who responded to the Brooklyn subway shooting attack that injured nearly two dozen people last month.
The ceremony was held at City Hall around 12:45 p.m. Adams thanked the first responders for their bravery. Each member received an official proclamation from the mayor.
“These heroes in the room … our first responders jumped into action,” Adams said. “Far too often, we don’t say thank you enough and that’s what we’re doing today.”
It’s been more than a month since suspect Frank James allegedly discharged smoke canisters and fired a gun 33 times while onboard an N train in Sunset Park during the peak morning commute on April 12. Ten people were shot and more than a dozen others were injured, officials said.
