Memorial marks 1-year anniversary of slain NYPD officer

Officials held memorial services Thursday honoring NYPD Officer Randolph Holder, who was shot and killed in the line of duty last year.



According to officials, 30-year-old Tyrone Howard opened fire on Officer Holder during a chase, after stealing a bike in Harlem.



He was a third-generation police officer, according to family and friends. His father and grandfather both served in their native Guyana.



City officials honored Holder with the memorial ceremony in Battery Park City. 



A plaque-unveiling ceremony was also held in front of PSA 5 near the unit where Holder worked.
