Two separate funerals on L.I. for fallen officers
LONG ISLAND (WABC) -- On Long Island one emotional day of mourning for two police officers killed in the line of duty.
The men died in separate incidents, and are both set to be laid to rest today.
A burial will follow the ceremony, at Long Island National Cemetery in Farmingdale.
Friend, family, and fellow officers gathered at a wake for Schaberger yesterday.
He was killed on Sunday when police say a suspect pushed him over a railing in Brooklyn, sending him falling nine feet down to a concrete staircase.
Schaberger fell on his head, and broke his neck.
Breitkopf was killed when an MTA officer mistakenly shot him Saturday, following a standoff with a knife-wielding suspect in Massapequa.
That suspect was also shot and killed.
Brietkopf, a 12-year veteran of the force, was assigned to the elite special operations bureau, and was in plainclothes at the time.
Mourners attended a tearful wake for him Wednesday, at the Selden firehouse where he volunteered.
