Photos show suspects in Carey Gabay death
Police released pictures of the suspects wanted in connection with the shooting death of a former aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo and met with other city officials on how to increase safety at the festival where he was shot.
The West Indian American Day Parade and its related J'Ouvert festival are often marred by violence.
Carey Gabay was shot and killed before dawn near the grounds of the parade in Crown Heights six months ago. His wife joined NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton, the borough president and other elected officials for a meeting on J'Ouvert safety.
There is not yet a plan in place, officials say, but several ideas are on the table. They include better lighting, increased patrols and requiring permits.
A big criticism of the West Indian American Day Parade is that it is not required to have a permit -- while the city's other major parades are. Officials say the permit would allow for better crowd control, a more confined route and the festivities to be held within a certain time limit.
Police say Gabay was an innocent bystander caught in the crossfire between two armed groups.
The wanted suspects are three men between 25 and 30 years old and a woman between 18 and 20, police say.
There is a $22,000 reward offered for information in the case.
