Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and gun safety advocates will hold a vigil in Prospect Park Monday night as the NYPD steps up security across the city in the wake of the mass shootings in Texas and Ohio.
Organizers say the vigil at Grand Army Plaza, set for 7 p.m. Monday, will remember the victims of the incidents in Dayton and El Paso, plus the deadly shooting the weekend before last in Brooklyn’s Brownsville section.
Meantime, throughout the city, the NYPD says it has stepped up patrols as a precaution in response to this past weekend’s violence, although there are no known threats here.
Retired NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce says officers are well trained to handle any active-shooter situation that might arise.
