Peter Figoski - Law Enforcement - New York

Police Officer Peter Figoski, age 47, died on December 12, 2011, in the line of duty. 

Peter was a member of the 75th Precinct of the New York City Police Department. He had 22 years of service. 

He was shot and killed while responding to a robbery call in Brooklyn, at approximately 2:00 am.

Michael, Archangel, Patron
Saint Saint of the Police, pray
for Peter
Officer Figoski and his partner responded to a call of a home invasion robbery. When they arrived two officers were on the scene interviewing the victim and a witness. Unknown to the officers, the robbery suspects were still inside the basement apartment hiding. The two suspects then attempted to flee from the apartment and one suspect engaged in a struggle with Officer Figoski's partner. The second suspect then appeared and shot Officer Figoski in the head. Officer Figoski's partner, upon hearing the shot and seeing the armed male fleeing, pursued the gunman on foot and apprehended him after a two block foot chase. The second suspect escaped and remains at large.

Peter was rushed to a local hospital where he died of his wound. 

Peter was a highly decorated officer with 8 medals for exceptional police duty.

Neighbors describe Peter as a salt-of-the-earth type man. 

Peter is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his four daughters. 

Pray for all who die in the line of duty. 

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Peter Figoski is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
