The BronxCongressman José E. Serrano today released the following statement on the shooting of NYPD Officer Miositis Familia while serving on duty in the Bronx yesterday:

“Yesterday, we lost one more innocent victim to a gun related crime in the Bronx. Miosotis was not only a neighbor and fellow New Yorker, she was one of the many valiant NYPD officers who put their lives on the line every day to keep our streets safe. Today, let us all unite in thanking her for her service and sacrifice and keep her family and loved ones in our thoughts and prayers. This vicious crime is also one more example of why we need to do more to reduce gun violence. As Ranking Member of the Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations Subcommittee, I will continue working to ensure the key agencies involved in reducing gun violence have the funding they need to keep our communities safe,” said Congressman Serrano.
