Slain NYPD officers being remembered

Posted by wlpo on December 21, 2014

A New York Police Department baseball cap surrounded by flowers, teddy bears and candles is marking the Brooklyn spot where 2 police officers were killed by a gunman who was targeting law enforcement.  Visitors from other boroughs have come to Thompson and Myrtle avenues to pay their respects to officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu.

The men were killed Saturday as they sat in their patrol car. The gunman killed himself shortly afterward. He had posted online about his intention of killing police officers.

Among the visitors to the spot Sunday was 58-year-old Gary Watson of the Hamilton Heights section of Manhattan. He had a card and a money order that he wanted to donate to the officers’ families.
