VIDEO: Thousands Honor NYPD Officer Killed by Suspected Arson Fire

Friends, family and fellow police officers bid an emotional final farewell Monday to NYPD Officer Dennis Guerra, who died after being critically hurt in a fire on Coney Island.

As CBS 2’s Jessica Schneider reported, thousands of police officers – and more than 10,000 people at all – lined the streets at Guerra’s funeral at the St. Rose of Lima Roman Catholic Church, at 130 Beach 84th St. in Rockaway Beach, Queens. The hearse carrying Guerra’s remains passed through the beachside community, as NYPD helicopters performed a flyover and hundreds made their way into the funeral.

The 38-year-old was an eight-year veteran of the NYPD and lived in Far Rockaway with his wife Cathy and their four children – Kathleen, 20; Jonathan, 17; Alyssa, 14; and Zachary, 7.
