Newburgh, NY – Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) released the following statement after reports that two women were shot and killed at a Halloween party in Newburgh on Sunday, October 30th.
"My thoughts and prayers go out to these young women, their families and loved ones, and to the residents of the City of Newburgh. Folks deserve to feel safe in their homes and trick-or-treating in their neighborhoods on Halloween, yet once again we are left praying for those who had their whole lives ahead of them but have been robbed of their future because of senseless shootings. Enough is enough - the gun violence in our city must end.
