Posted to Applied Web NY on Wed, 06/05/2019 - 15:57

"I am appalled by reports of a threatening message posted on Facebook calling for a mass shooting of Watertown's LGBTQ community during Pride activities.

"In New York, we have zero tolerance for such cowardly acts and I've asked State Police to assist local authorities to prosecute this individual to the fullest extent of the law.

"New York stands tallest when we stand together, and we will call out bigotry and hate wherever and whenever we see it."
