NEW YORK (AP) — A sea of friends, family and fellow law enforcement officers will be mourning a New York City police officer who was fatally shot by a suspect.
A wake for Officer Randolph Holder is being held Tuesday at the Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York.
Holder died last Tuesday after being shot in the head by a fleeing suspect.
The 33-year-old and his partner had responded to a call of shots fired and a bicycle stolen at gunpoint when a suspect they were chasing opened fire on them.
The suspect, Tyrone Howard, was charged with murder and robbery. His lawyer says there are missing details in the case.
Holder’s funeral will be held Wednesday. He will be buried in his native Guyana.
