President Biden said on Tuesday that his administration won’t be “letting up” until the suspect of this morning’s shooting on a subway in Brooklyn is found.
Biden brought up the incident during his opening remarks at a speech in Iowa, saying, “My wife, Jill, and I are praying for those who are injured and all those touched by that trauma. And we're grateful for all of the first responders who jumped in action, including civilians —civilians who didn't hesitate to help their fellow passengers to try to shield them.”
The President said his team is in touch with the New York City’s mayor and New York’s police commissioner, adding that “the Department of Justice and the FBI are working closely with the NYPD on the ground.”
“We're gonna continue to stay in close contact with New York authorities as we learn more about the situation over the coming hours and days. And something could have broken between now and the last hour — I haven't heard the news, I haven't spoken with anyone on my staff, but we're not letting up on it until we find out, and we find the perpetrator,” he added.
