The NYPD launched a massive manhunt Tuesday for a gunman who shot at least 10 people inside a packed subway car in Brooklyn.
New York Governor Kathy Hochul called the event a “mass shooting” during a press conference outside the station.
“No more mass shootings. No more disrespecting lives. No more creating heartbreak for people just trying to live their lives as normal New Yorkers. It has to end. It ends now,” said the Democrat.
