The 25th anniversary of the LIRR shooting


The Long Island Rail Road Commuter Council remembers the tragic events of December 7th, 1993 when a deranged man fired on commuters on a LIRR train. Although it has been 25 years, we commuters recall the unfortunate event clearly and still mourn with those families who were so directly affected. We ride with our fellow commuters every day and we must continue to watch out for each other and also press the LIRR and MTA to provide us all with a safe and efficient commute.
