Cuomo Aide Shot Before NYC Parade Dies


Caray GabayA lawyer appointed to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration, who was shot in the head during pre-dawn celebrations before a Brooklyn parade, died on Wednesday.

Caray Gabay, the first deputy counsel to the governor, was removed from the respirator a day after he had been declared brain dead, his family confirmed.

The 43-year-old was struck by a stray bullet while walking with his brother around 3:40 a.m., during early morning festivities before the West Indian Day Parade.

Police are using facial recognition software to identify the gunman, who officers believe is a local gang member. The suspect is described as a black man with a beard in his late teens or early 20s and was wearing a white T-shirt, black pants and a Jamaican flag. Read more at ABC 7 New York.
