Police Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, who were shot to death yesterday while on duty, were assigned to our local 84th Precinct, according to this notice from Community Board 2. At the time they were shot, they were “operating within the confines of the 79th Precinct” at Myrtle and Tompkins avenues.
We at BHB join with CB2 in expressing our deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Officers Liu and Ramos, and to their fellow officers.
Brooklyn Eagle: A memorial of flowers and stuffed animals piled up at the entrance to Downtown Brooklyn’s 84th Precinct on Gold Street on Sunday, as hushed passersby added a card, said a prayer or lit a candle.
Mourners cried. Firefighters from Engine Company 210 grimly carried in food and baked goods.
