NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Flags are flying at half-staff at the New York Police Department’s 84th precinct in Downtown Brooklyn after two officers were gunned down Saturday afternoon while on duty.
The two officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, were shot dead as they sat in their marked patrol car at the corner of Myrtle Avenue and Tompkins Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.
Officer Ramos had just celebrated his 40th birthday on December 12. As CBS2’s Dave Carlin reported, Ramos had previously been a school safety officer with the NYPD. He would have been with the force three years this January.
Those who knew him said he loved being stationed with the 84th precinct, Carlin reported.
Ramos leaves behind a wife and 13-year-old son.
“We met the wife of Officer Ramos, we met his 13-year-old son who couldn’t comprehend what happened to his father,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said Saturday.
