NEW YORK (WABC) – There were tears but some hope as New York City took time to remember the two NYPD officers who were shot and killed a year ago.

Jason Rivera and Wilbert Moreau were shot by a suspect after responding to a domestic violence call in Harlem.

Jason Rivera’s widow has announced her pregnancy. She spoke at a memorial service for her husband – and Wilbert Moreau – at St Patrick’s Cathedral on Saturday.

The NYPD posthumously promoted both officers to detectives following the shooting.

The man who opened fire on the officers was shot and later died at the hospital.
