A second New York City police officer has succumbed to his injuries four days after he and his partner were mortally wounded in a Harlem shooting.
Commissioner Keechant Sewell announced on Tuesday that Officer Wilbert Mora had passed away. He was 27.
"It’s with great sadness I announce the passing of Police Officer Wilbert Mora," Sewell said in a tweet. "Wilbert is three times a hero. For choosing a life of service. For sacrificing his life to protect others. For giving life even in death through organ donation. Our heads are bowed & our hearts are heavy."
Police said the officers were responding to a domestic call when Lashawn J. McNeil shot them as they walked down a narrow hallway in a Harlem apartment, the Associated Press reported.
Mora's partner Officer Jason Rivera died on Friday.
Mora was rushed to Harlem Hospital.
A third officer shot 47-year-old McNeil, who died Monday, officials said.
According to the New York Times, Mora joined the department in 2018.
