McMahon today announced that he has created a new Firearms Anti-Violence Unit within the Richmond County District Attorney’s Office that will work specifically to prosecute firearms cases as part of the office’s continued effort to combat gun violence on Staten Island. In addition to handling all felony gun cases, including homicides committed with a firearm, the Firearms Anti-Violence Unit will help identify drivers of shooting and gun violence incidents and also better target community-specific efforts to reduce the incidence of gun violence. The Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, under the leadership of Director Elizabeth Glazer, granted McMahon the funding to create this new unit as part of a Citywide, anti-violence initiative. McMahon also announced today that he has named Nina Spadafora, a Staten Island resident and ten-year veteran Assistant District Attorney with the office, to be the inaugural Chief of the Firearms Anti-Violence Unit.
