Cuomo Staffer Shot Ahead of NYC Parade

A lawyer appointed to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration was one of three people shot during pre-celebrations for New York City's West Indian Day Parade early Monday. Cuomo said Carey Gabay, 43, was shot in the head and is in critical condition after violence erupted ahead of the massive parade. A 24-year-old male died at the hospital after he was stabbed at about 2 a.m. while two others were shot ahead of the J'Ouvert Festival, which kicked off at 4 a.m. Monday. Gabay, who was struck in the head by a "random bullet" around 3:40 a.m. while walking with his brother, was "not doing well" as of Monday afternoon, according to Cuomo. The circumstances surrounding the shooting are unclear, but the governor suggested Gabay was a bystander. Gabay's wife is pregnant with the couple's first child, Cuomo added.
