On Monday, Eric Garner’s daughter, Emerald Garner, visited the memorial for two slain NYPD officers killed Saturday. Snipes laid a wreath at the makeshift site for officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, who were fatally shot while sitting in their patrol car by lone gunman Ismaaiyl Brinsley. Brinsley would commit suicide shortly after the killings.

“I just had to come out and let their family know that we stand with them, and I’m going to send my prayers and condolences to all the families who are suffering through this tragedy,” Garner told ABC News.

Garner, 22, visited with the Ramos family earlier in the week and told the New York Post that a Facebook post from 13-year-old Jaden Ramos, expressing his grief over his father’s death, touched her.

“Today I had to say bye to my father,” Jaden wrote in his Facebook post. “He was the best father I could ask for. It’s horrible that someone gets shot dead just for being a police officer.”
