NEW YORK—Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12) today released the following statement on the death of New York Police Officer Randolph Holder

“My thoughts and prayers are with Officer Holder’s family. This brave young man was living his own version of the American dream and following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather as a third-generation police officer. Officer Holder was on the force for 5 years and had his whole life in front of him, but all that potential was cut short in a moment of needless violence as he pursued a suspect in East Harlem.  We have lost a valiant officer who was doing his job and trying to keep the community safe. Officer Holder’s death is a great loss for his family, the NYPD and our city.

“I applaud the NYPD for moving quickly to arrest the individual suspected of this horrific crime.”
