NEW YORK (AP) — The second of two New York City police officers to be buried after a daylight ambush will be mourned at a funeral this weekend.

Aievoli (ay'-vee-OH'-lee) Funeral Home says viewing and visitation for Officer Wenjian Liu (WEHN'-jihn LOO') will be held from 1 to 9 p.m. Saturday, and his funeral will be at 10 a.m. Sunday. Both will be at the funeral home in Brooklyn.

Vice President Joe Biden and thousands of officers were among those who remembered Liu's partner, Officer Rafael Ramos (rah-fy-EHL' RAH'-mohs), at a funeral Saturday.

Liu and Ramos were shot to death inside their patrol car Dec. 20 by a gunman who had posted online about plans to attack police.

The funeral arrangements for Liu took some time, as he had relatives traveling from China.
