On Sunday afternoon, the NYPD Bowling Team and NYPD Sports Unit held a fundraising bowling event at Levittown Lanes in Levittown for the families of two officers shot in Harlem. The outing was attended by both members of the NYPD and members of the community.

What was originally scheduled as an event to raise money for Autism Speaks became an event to raise money for the families of New York City Police Officers Jason Rivera and Wilbert Mora, of the NYPD 32nd Precinct in Harlem, who were shot responding to a domestic violence call Friday night.

Police Officer Rivera, a 22-year-old newlywed, succumbed to his injury, while Officer Mora remains in critical condition after being transferred to NYU Langone Hospital.

The fundraiser for Officers Rivera and Mora’s families, hosted by “Fund the First,” has raised more than a quarter of a million dollars.
