A Brooklyn street was renamed in the honor of fallen NYPD Officer Wenjian Liu, reports the New York Daily News.
Last Saturday, NYC Mayor De Blasio and Police Commissioner Bill Bratton met with Liu’s wife, Pei Xia Chen, and his family on the corner of his home on West 6th and Avenue T where the new street sign, “Detective Wenjian Liu Way” was placed.
“For the Liu family, for their neighbors, their friends, their entire community, this will be one physical manifestation of the life of a great man, one more reminder of his brave spirit,” the mayor said.
Liu and Ramos were shot while on duty in December by Ismaaiyl Brinsley who traveled from Baltimore and used his instragram account to announce his plan to kill cops.
Jaden Ramos, wife of officer Ramos, and fellow NYPD officers also attended the ceremony.
