Wake Held for NYPD Detective Brian Simonsen

A wake is continuing on Tuesday for NYPD Detective Brian Simonsen on Long Island.

Simonsen was killed last week in a friendly fire shooting during a robbery at a T-Mobile store in Queens. Simonsen was shot in the chest and was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

A second officer was also shot by friendly fire and injured.

Two suspects have been arrested and are facing murder and other charges. One of the suspects had an imitation gun that was recovered at the scene.

A funeral for Simonsen is scheduled for Wednesday.
