NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A funeral was held Thursday for a firefighter killed in an apparent road rage incident in Brooklyn.
Faizal Coto was laid to rest around 11 a.m. at Leone Funeral Home Inc. in Park Slope.
“What a sad, a really sad morning. What a wonderful outpouring of love for a really nice young man who was just starting out his career, three years into his career with the department, senselessly murdered,” said Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro. “And now we have a family who has lost their son, their brother, we have a firehouse full of people who lost a very good friend, and we have a city who lost a public servant who would’ve served the city well for many, many, many years. And all of that over some incident of road rage, and who can understand it.”
