When will this senseless violence stop?

48-year-old Officer Miosotis Familia was shot on duty soon after midnight as she sat in her police vehicle along with her partner in the Bronx.

She had passed away at St. Barnabas Hospital soon afterwards according to the New York Police Department. The attack is being called “unprovoked.”

34-year-old Alexander Bonds is the suspect alleged to have done the shooting.

According to PIX 11, he “walked out of a bodega in the Fordham Heights neighborhood of the Bronx around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday and shot officer Miosotis Familia in the face as she sat in a marked NYPD command vehicle, police said.”

He previously served seven years in prison for a robbery. According to the NY Daily News he also previously attacked an officer with brass knuckles.

We pray for the family as they go through this tough time.
