Hundreds of police officers paid tribute to slain NYPD Officer Wilbert Mora who was driven to a Manhattan funeral home Wednesday.
Sources said a squad of cops on motorcycles led the way uptown, with a line of Mora’s fellow NYPD officers standing and saluting their fallen comrade as his body arrived at the Riverdale Funeral Home in Inwood.
According to reports, Mora’s family wept and hugged one another as his flag-draped casket was brought out of an NYPD ambulance.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams and Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell also attended the tribute of NYPD to Mora.
The 27-year-old Mora, a four-year NYPD veteran, will also be honored next week in St. Patrick’s Cathedral at a Tuesday wake and a Wednesday funeral.
Mora died earlier while being treated for his wounds after he was shot by a gunman identified as Lashawn J. McNeil, 47 while responding to a domestic violence case at a Harlem apartment.
It was learned that the family of Mora has decided to donate some of his vital organs to those who need them.
Among the organs, the Mora family donated are the kidneys, heart, pancreas, and liver.
