NEW YORK—Following the horrific shooting of NYPD Officer Miosotis Familia, Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12) released the following statement:

“The cold-blooded assassination of Officer Miosotis Familia, while she was sitting in a police vehicle in the Bronx early this morning, was a horrific and contemptible act of mindless savagery.

“Officer Familia was only there to do what she had been doing every work day for the past 12 years: serve and protect the city she loved. My most heartfelt condolences go to her family, her friends and all of her colleagues who serve with her in the New York Police Department. 

“This heartbreaking tragedy is a reminder of the risks that the men and women of the NYPD face every day as they work to protect us. All of us owe a tremendous debt of gratitude for the service and sacrifices that the NYPD make on our behalf.”
