Vigil held for slain correction officer

Law enforcement officers and other mourners gathered Thursday to remember a city correction officer who was gunned down at 73rd Street and Avenue L Sunday.



Police say Alastasia Bryan, 25, was sitting in a car outside her mother's home when a gunman fired multiple rounds.



They say they believe the killer was waiting for her and sped off in another vehicle.



The Correction Officers Benevolent Association is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction.



Earlier in the week, police said they wanted to question Bryan's ex-boyfriend.



Anyone with information about the slaying is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS or 1-888-57-PISTA in Spanish.
