The nation was stunned Saturday afternoon to learn about the execution-style assassination of two NYPD police officers.
A friend of Officer Rafael Ramos, one of the officers, described him as a Christ follower who loved his family.
Rob Davis describes Ramos as a “man of God” who “put God and his family first in his life.”
Davis, of Cross Platform Media Group, worked with Ramos when Davis was the executive pastor of Christ Tabernacle Church in Queens.
“This is just a crazy, senseless situation,” he tells OneNewsNow.
While sitting in their patrol car in Brooklyn, Rafael Ramos and partner Wenjian Liu were slain by lone gunman Ismaaiyl Brinsley.
Authorities claim Brinsley, who was black, sought retribution for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner. Media reports describe the gunman as a troubled man with many arrests.
Fox News reported that a cousin of Ramos, Ronnie Gonzalez, said the family has already forgiven the gunman.
“He’s in the hands of God now,” Gonzalez said. “We don’t believe in vengeance, we just forgive.”
