Funeral held for Brooklyn woman hit and killed
Family members and friends said a final goodbye to the Brooklyn woman hit and killed by an NYPD officer a week ago.
A funeral service was held at the Church of God on Flatbush Avenue to mourn Vionique Valnord, the daughter of a Brooklyn pastor, who was hit and killed trying to hail a cab. Family members say Valnord was in Bible school and hoped to become a missionary.
The driver of the car, off-duty Officer Andrew Kelly, had pled not guilty to vehicular manslaughter and driving while intoxicated.
A third officer was suspended Saturday after surveillance video showed he gave Kelly gum and bottles of water at the scene.
