'Bagel for Blue' raises money to honor Officer Miosotis Familia

New York police officer shot while sitting in marked patrol car

Officer Familia's wake will be held on Monday and she will be laid to rest on Tuesday.

Flower bouquets lined the sidewalk outside Familia's 46th Precinct stationhouse.

Hundreds of people have paid tribute to her during vigils since the shooting.

Familia was shot to death early Wednesday, ambushed inside her command post by an ex-convict, who was later killed after pulling a gun on police.

United States taps ex-envoy to NATO Volker to resolve Ukraine crisis
The Secretary appointed a special representative for Ukraine last week, in an effort to further involve the U.S.in the region. Tillerson says that the USA goal in Ukraine is to restore the country's territorial sovereignty and integrity.

Today (July 5), we join as New Yorkers with our hearts heavy and outraged at the cold-blooded assassination of NYPD Officer Miosotis Familia. She was reassigned to patrol as part of the department's Summer All Out program, in which officers formerly assigned to administrative jobs work 8 p.m.to 4 a.m., when most violent crimes take place.

On Friday, Familia's oldest daughter, Genesis Villella, 20, released a statement, "She was incredibly amusing". Soon after, officers shot and killed the gunman after they say he drew a weapon on them.

Instead of charging customers for the special blue-colored bagels, Bagels R Us encouraged customers to donate to the charity that will then deliver proceeds to the officer's children. She said he had paranoid schizophrenia, and a search of his home after the shooting found medication, but it is unknown if he had been taking them.
