New York’s Fifth Avenue was a “sea of blue” Friday as police gathered to honor fallen New York Police Officer Jason Rivera.
Rivera was one of two NYPD officers shot during a response to a domestic on January 21, 2022. Twenty-two-year-old Rivera was killed by the suspect’s gunfire and a second officer, 27-year-old Wilbert Mora, was left in critical condition and died on Tuesday.
Officers showed up on Fifth Avenue by the thousands to honor Rivera.
