NEW YORK (CBS News) – An aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo who was shot in the crossfire between two gangs hours before the city’s West Indian Day parade died Wednesday, police said.

Carey Gabay, a first deputy general counsel at the Empire State Development Corp., was shot in the head during a pre-dawn party celebrating the parade earlier this month. He was hospitalized and placed into a medically induced coma.

Earlier Wednesday, his family announced he had been declared brain dead.

“Our family is grieving that a man in the prime of his life who has impacted so many lives could be struck down by such a callous act,” the family said in a statement. “This is a nightmare that’s shaken our resolve and tested our faith.”

Cuomo called Gabay, a 43-year-old Harvard University-educated lawyer, “the epitome of an outstanding public servant.”
