Thousands expected at funeral for NY policeman slain on duty

Family, friends and fellow law enforcement officers will say their final goodbyes to a New York City police officer slain on duty before his body is sent to his native Guyana for burial. A funeral will be held Wednesday afternoon for Officer Randolph Holder at the Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral of New York in Queens. The five-year veteran was killed on Oct. 20 after being shot in the head in Manhattan’s East Harlem neighborhood. He and his partner had been chasing a man after responding to a call of shots fired and a bicycle stolen at gunpoint. Authorities allege the suspect hopped off the stolen bicycle and shot Holder in the head.
