Thousands gather for funeral of slain NYPD officer

The NYPD officer who was assassinated in The Bronx last week will be laid to rest Tuesday morning in a funeral service that’s expected to be attended by thousands.

Miosotis Familia, 48, a 12-year veteran, was shot in the head while sitting in a mobile command van last Wednesday.

The funeral for the mother of three is set for 10 a.m. at World Changers Church in The Bronx.

“Today we lay to rest Miosotis Familia; an amazing mom, daughter, sister & #NYPD cop assassinated solely for the responsibility she embraced,” Police Commissioner James O’Neill tweeted Tuesday ahead of the funeral.

The funeral will be live-streamed here.
