NEW YORK (AP) - Friends of the New York City officer shot to death inside a police RV say she was the "sweetest person you'd ever want to meet."
Officer Miosotis Familia died Wednesday after a gunman fired through the glass, striking her in the head. Police say the gunman fled, and when officers caught up with him a block away, he pointed a revolver at them and they fatally shot him.
Family friend Isabelita Roman said Familia became a police officer to help the community. Neighbor Tom Ritter said: "She'd give you the shirt off her back. She was the sweetest person you ever want to meet."
Familia had been on the force for 12 years and was assigned to a Bronx precinct. She had three children, including a set of twins.
