Brooklyn candlelight vigil set for 6 p.m. for slain NYPD officers


BEDFORD-STUYVESANT (WABC) -- The NYPD is mourning two New York City officers who were shot and killed inside a marked patrol car in Brooklyn Saturday.

The two officers, identified as Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, were on duty around 3 p.m. in Bedford-Stuyvesant near Tompkins and Myrtle Avenues when both were shot in the head.

Borough presidents gathered at the location Sunday to call for peace and unity and announce plans for a candlelight vigil at 6 p.m. at the scene. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams is also calling on protesters to halt demonstrations until the officers are laid to rest.
