Cuomo aide still critical; video of NYC shooting suspects aired
A top aide to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo who was wounded by a stray bullet on Monday is still in critical condition, officials said on Saturday, after police released surveillance video of two armed suspects fleeing the scene of the shooting.
The video, released late Friday as detectives seek to identify the suspects, shows two men apparently armed with handguns running into a building in Brooklyn, where the shooting occurred.
Carey Gabay, 43, was struck in the head at a pre-dawn outdoor celebration on Monday before the annual West Indian Day parade, which has been plagued by violence in recent years. He is believed to have been an unintended target, police said.
Gabay, the first deputy counsel at Empire State Development, the state's chief economic development agency, remains in critical condition in an induced coma at Kings County Hospital Center, according to a Cuomo spokesman.
