NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The family of officer Wenjian Liu cried during a visit to the makeshift memorial to him and officer Rafael Ramos on Christmas Eve.
A line of police officers stood saluting in silence as they placed two huge wreaths to lay at the site.
Liu and Ramos were shot dead in Brooklyn Saturday.
The makeshift memorial to them has continued to grow ever since. It includes hundreds of flowers stacked 10 feet deep, reported WCBS 880’s Jim Smith. A canopy protects the numerous prayer candles, allowing them to shine despite the rain.
