New York police officer shot while sitting in marked patrol car

Officer Familia was ambushed and killed in an "unprovoked attack" last week in the Bronx after police said a deranged man shot through the window of her mobile command unit she was in.

Hundreds gathered Saturday night for a vigil to remember Familia, and flower bouquets line the sidewalk outside Familia's 46th Precinct stationhouse. Her sister couldn't come to words, telling the crowd office Familia was a good person.

The NYPD had initially planned to retrofit only patrol cars with ballistic panels and bullet-resistant glass, but after the killing of Familia - a single mother of three - the department chose to safeguard the mobile command centers as well. Both services will take place at World Changers Church at 2417 Grand Concourse in the Bronx.
