It is with deep sorrow we announce that NYPD Police Officer Miosotis Familia has died after being shot earlier this morning in the line of duty. Officer Familia, a 12-year veteran and assigned to the 46 Precinct in the Bronx, was shot in an unprovoked attack while she and her partner sat in a Department vehicle. The suspect was later shot and killed by responding police officers and a firearm was recovered.
As we mourn the death of our officer, join us in sending her family and loved ones prayers and support.
