A vigil was held in the Bronx on Wednesday night to remember NYPD officer Miosotis Familia, who was killed in an unprovoked attack.
Familia, 48, was sitting in a mobile command unit at 183rd Street and Morris Avenue early Wednesday morning when Alexander Bonds shot her in the head. Bonds was killed about a block away by responding officers.
People gathered at the 46th Precinct where Familia worked to remember her life. She was the mother of a 20-year-old daughter and 12-year-old twins. Familia had been with the NYPD for 12 years.
Bonds was a career criminal who was on parole for a robbery case in Syracuse. He was also arrested in 2001 for assaulting police with brass knuckles. On Facebook, Bonds also posted anti-police videos.
