NEW YORK (PIX11) — Vice President Joe Biden plans to attend the funeral for two NYPD officers killed execution-style last weekend.

The White House says President Barack Obama, who is currently in Hawaii, has asked Biden to attend Saturday’s service for Officer Rafael Ramos at Christ Tabernacle Church in Glendale.

Officer Ramos and his partner Wenjian Liu were gunned down in Bedford-Stuyvesant on Saturday by a man who said he was retaliating against police for the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton says services for Officer Liu will be planned when his family arrives from China.
