New York police officers lined the street as the remains of Wilbert Mora, fatally shot in the line of duty, were transported to a Bronx funeral home on January 26.

Officers Wilbert Mora, 27, and Jason Rivera, 22, were both shot on January 21 while responding to a domestic disturbance call in Harlem. Rivera died that day, and Mora on January 25.

New York City Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell said the men were trying to provide aid to a man, who then opened fire on them “suddenly and without warning.”

In a media address, Sewell said: “I am struggling to find the words to express the tragedy that we are enduring. We are mourning and we are angry.” Credit: NYPD via Storyful
