MONROE, N.Y. (WCBS 880) — A funeral will be held on Friday for an NYPD officer killed by friendly fire in the Bronx.

Officer Brian Mulkeen was killed Sunday morning just after midnight when he was struck by two police bullets as he and a group of other officers struggled to apprehend an armed suspect near the Edenwald Houses.

The 33-year-old veteran officer, a resident of Yorktown Heights, died from his wounds at Jacobi Hospital shortly after. The suspect, a 27-year-old, was also killed.

A wake has now been set for Thursday at Smith, Seaman & Quackenbush Funeral Home at 117 Maple Ave in Monroe. Viewings will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

A funeral mass will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday at the Church of the Sacred Heart at 26 Still Road.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer has ordered all flags at county facilities to be lowered to half-staff in honor of the fallen officer.

Mulkeen worked out of the 47th precinct and made nearly 270 arrests over his six-year career, earning five NYPD medals.

The 33-year-old is survived by his parents, sister and a girlfriend, who is also an NYPD officer.
