Paterson NJ Mayor: ”This Senseless Violence Must End Today”

The following is a statement from the Honorable Paterson Mayor Andre Sayegh

“Clearly, the severity of this incident speaks to larger problems than urban violence that need to be addressed in the immediate future. However, I want to be clear that we will have zero tolerance for violence in our City.

Both prevention of loss of life and public safety are paramount to my agenda and I will personally engage in the process to curb these types of heinous incidents, which steal our young residents and instill fear in the community at large.

Currently, I'm working with my administration and community leaders to put the young people who are engaging in this dangerous behavior in a room and explain the gravity of their actions, just as we'll ensure that they understand the seriousness of our commitment to stopping further attacks.

This must end today.”
