NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Members of the NYPD gathered in Brooklyn overnight to remember one of their own, killed in the line of duty.
A vigil was held Friday night on Pine Street in Cypress Hills — the scene where 47-year-old NYPD Det. Peter Figoski was shot and killed during a robbery four years ago.
Fellow officers praised Figoski for his bravery and courage.
In 2013, a bridge in West Babylon — where Figoski lived — was renamed in his honor.
Figoski was a 22-year veteran on the force. He left behind four daughters.
Pride’s alleged getaway driver, Michael Velez, was found not guilty of first- and second-degree burglary and a fifth suspect, Ariel Tejada, testified against the others as part of a plea deal that gave him a lesser sentence.
