The tragedy comes just a month after Goldman Sachs employee Daniel Enriquez, who worked in the bank’s Global Investment Research division, was brutally shot on a Manhattan-bound Q train on his way to brunch. Goldman chief executive David Solomon called the incident a “devastating” and “stupid tragedy” in a statement to bank employees.
