Widow and family are asking anyone with information about the shooter who killed 35-year-old Tyree Walker outside the Sumner Houses to come forward to help police in their investigation. Walker is the second Bedford Stuyvesant man to be shot and killed in a week. A third man and a Bronx girl have also been injured in gunfire this week. Advocates without Borders is offering $1000 reward for information.
Said Tony Herbert, “The mixture of drugs and illegal handguns are causing our streets to become a war zone. The “progressive” philosophy espoused by the leaders and judges of New York City is sending a message to criminals that they can get away with just about anything. Our police are doing their best to keep our streets safe but they need partners to support them. When District Attorneys refuse to prosecute people suspected of committing low level crimes, and judges are releasing suspects on their own recognizance, the community is forced to become prisoners in their own homes to escape the violence taking place on the streets.
“We must do better. I am calling on our “progressive” elected officials to adopt a mandatory sentence of 10 years for anyone possessing an illegal firearm. Progress should not leave anyone behind – so why are the people living in low income neighborhoods across this city being shot, wounded, raped and killed for going about their daily business?”
