Harlem Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito: Murder of NYPD Officer Randolph Holder


Statement from Harlem Speaker on the shooting of Officer Randolph Holder, 33, NYPD housing officer was shot in the head and killed Tuesday night in Harlem Hospital: Every day, the courageous men and women of the NYPD selflessly serve New York City with honor and dignity and the murder of Officer Randolph Holder is a devastating loss for all New Yorkers.

The cold blooded murder of a New York City Police Officer tasked with protecting residents in the vicinity of the East River Houses in the very district I represent is a vicious act of violence that goes against the very fabric of our City. Tonight, all New Yorkers are united in sorrow as we mourn the loss of one of NYPD’s finest. Our deepest sympathies and prayers are with Officer Holder’s loved ones and the entire NYPD family during this tragic time.”
