NY homes agency to upgrade security after stabbing
NEW YORK (AP) New York City's housing authority says it will work to expedite security upgrades following the stabbing death of a 6-year-old boy in a public housing building that didn't have cameras and criticism from the mayor.
Mayor Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH'-zee-oh) says an ''unacceptable bureaucracy'' led to the lack of security cameras in Brooklyn's Boulevard Houses.
A 6-year-old boy was killed and a 7-year-old girl was critically injured there in Sunday's knife attack. Their assailant remains at large.
De Blasio on Tuesday criticized the housing authority for not spending the $27 million available in its budget for security improvements such as cameras.
