Two members of the Gainesville Police honor guard are attending the funeral of a slain New York officer Tuesday.
A viewing for Officer Miosotis Familia was held Monday at World Changers Church in the Bronx. The funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the same place.
The 48-year-old Familia was ambushed Wednesday while sitting in an RV-like mobile command center. Alexander Bonds walked up and blasted a single round from a .38-caliber revolver through the passenger-side window. He was later killed by police.
JetBlue covered the expense for the Gainesville officers traveling to New York.
Familia was a police officer for 12 years and a mother of three children. Her friends and colleagues described her as a kind, caring person and a top-notch police officer.
