A Queens lawmaker is hosting a candle-light vigil in Ozone Park Sunday for the two young police officers who were killed in Manhattan last week while responding to a domestic disturbance.
Council Member Joann Ariola is hosting the vigil at 5:30 p.m. at Police Officer Nicholas Demutiis Park, located on Liberty Ave. between 101st and 102nd Street.
The vigil will remember Police Officers Jason Rivera, 22, and Wilbert Mora, 27, who were gunned down inside a Harlem apartment Friday. They were shot by Lashawn McNeil, 47 — a career criminal whose mother had called police for help after arguing with her son. McNeil was fatally shot during the incident.
