The partner of slain NYPD cop Peter Figoski choked up in court yesterday as he testified in the trial of two Brooklyn men accused in the botched robbery that led to the fatal shooting.

"I heard a loud noise, like a door slamming," said retired Detective Glenn Estrada, describing the moment his partner was shot in the face. "I heard a scream, like a surprised scream."

Alleged crew ringleader Nelson Morales, 28, and Kevin Santos, 32, are on trial in Brooklyn Supreme Court for burglary and felony murder for their roles in the East New York shooting.

Guilty. Now, shoot them in the face.

This was a tragic incident and I feel for his family and his partner.

But really... "...and pothead Kevin Santos, 32..."? That's how you describe someone?

God bless this officer and his family. Stay safe blues!
