Wife of Slain NYPD Officer Liu Speaks: ‘We Will Get Through This Together’

The wife of Officer Wenjian Liu, one of the two NYPD officers who tragically died after being shot in an ambush, made a brief, tearful statement to the press tonight, sending condolence to the family of Officer Rafael Ramos.

Here is the full statement from Pei Xia Chen:

“The Liu family would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to the police department, our neighbors, the entire New York City community, friends, and coworkers for the help and support they’ve provided. We would also like to express our condolence to Officer Ramos’ family. This is a difficult time for both of our families, but we will stand together and get through this together.”

Reports say Liu had gotten married just a few months ago. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio met privately with both the Liu and Ramos families.
