NEW YORK (AP/PIX11) — 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 Funeral Home says viewing and visitation for Officer Wenjian Liu 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 and others remembered Liu’s partner, Officer Rafael Ramos, at his funeral this past 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.

Street closures and parking restrictions were announced Friday by the NYPD:

From 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, 65th Street between 12th and 14th Avenues will be closed and there will be no parking.  There will also be no parking on 13th Avenue between 64th and 68th Streets.

From  7 a.m. until 2 p.m. Sunday afternoon, 65th Street between 11th and 18th Avenues will be closed to vehicular traffic, there will be no parking, and pedestrian traffic will be limited.  Additionally, there will be no parking on 13th Avenue between 64th Street and Bay Ridge Parkway.
