Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh’s Statement Regarding the S. Salina Street Shooting that Seriously Injured a 7-Year-Old Boy


Statement by Syracuse Mayor Ben Walsh on the June 28, 2021 S. Salina Street Shooting:

“My thoughts this morning are with the family who was fired upon in their car on South Salina Street last night. I’m especially concerned and pulling for the seven-year-old boy who was seriously injured in the shooting. Seeing the vehicle at the hospital last night and knowing someone took aim at a car with children inside of it was infuriating to me. It’s a senseless and cowardly act. We will do everything in our power to find those responsible. I call upon the community to come forward with any information about the perpetrators so we can bring them to justice.
