    Slain NYPD officer honored with street renaming in Manhattan

    INWOOD, Manhattan (WABC) — An NYPD detective killed last year while responding to a domestic violence call was honored Saturday with a street co-naming on the same street he grew up on.

    New York City Mayor Eric Adams delivered ceremonial remarks to honor fallen NYPD Det. Jason Rivera.

    “He lived life through his way and today we are naming the street in the community that he loved, ‘Jason Rivera’s Way,'” Mayor Adams said.

    The southwest corner of 204th Street and Sherman Avenue in the Inwood neighborhood is now called “Detective Jason “TATA” Rivera Way.”

    Rivera and his partner, Officer Wilbert Mora, were killed after responding to a domestic call in Harlem last year.

    Mora was also honored with a street-co-naming in his home borough of Brooklyn back in July.
