NY Governor Staffer Reportedly Shot, in Critical Condition

NEW YORK (AP) — An aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo remains in critical condition after being caught in the crossfire between two gangs in Brooklyn.

Carey Gabay, a first deputy general counsel at the Empire State Development Corp., was shot in the head during a pre-dawn party celebrating the West Indian Day parade on Monday.

He was taken to Kings County Hospital.

Cuomo called the 43-year-old Harvard-educated lawyer "an outstanding public servant" who joined his administration in 2011.

Gabay was walking with his brother near the Brooklyn parade route at 3:40 a.m. when he was caught in the crossfire.

The shooting was one of several outbursts of violence in the neighborhoods surrounding the parade. A 24-year-old man was fatally stabbed near Grand Army Plaza.

There have been no arrests in the shooting or stabbing.
