NYPD holds Queens vigil for slain rookie cop Edward Byrne, ambushed in 1988

Hundreds of New York’s Finest gathered in Queens early Saturday morning to commemorate a slain rookie cop who was ambushed and killed while sitting in his squad car there 34 years ago.

Mourners remembered Edward Byrne in a midnight ceremony on the corner of 107th Ave. and Inwood St. in South Jamaica – steps away from where he was fatally shot on Feb. 26, 1988 while guarding the house of a witness in a drug case. He was just 22.

“He didn’t ask why. He just took his assignment and understood it’s importance,” said NYPD Commanding Officer Inspector Vincent Tavalaro.

Those in attendance included family members of the hero cop, as well as NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell and other top brass.
