“Following Tuesday’s NYPD shooting and the tragic death of Deborah Danner, I called on New York State Attorney General to investigate the circumstances surrounding this incident, in the interests of fairness and impartiality.
“Attorney General Schneiderman’s review of the statute finds that his office does not have jurisdiction over the incident. Attorney General Schneiderman’s commitment to justice is unquestioned, and I appreciate his swift review of this case.
“Moving forward, I have the utmost confidence in Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark and her staff to conduct a thorough investigation of this shooting and the circumstances surrounding the death of Ms. Danner.
“On behalf of the people of The Bronx, I once again offer my condolences to Ms. Danner’s family and friends during this difficult time,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
