Liu and his partner were shot to death as they sat in their patrol car in daylight last weekend.

After the officers' deaths, the gunman, Ismaaiyl Brinsley killed himself.

Thousands of police officers from across the nation packed a church and spilled onto streets Saturday to honor Officer Rafael Ramos as a devoted family man, aspiring chaplain and hero, though an air of unrest surrounding his ambush shooting was not completely pushed aside.
