Both officers made their way down a narrow apartment hallway to a back bedroom where a woman said her son who had been threatening her was located.

Lashawn McNeil, 47, allegedly kicked open the bedroom door and started shooting Rivera and Mora without warning. They were rushed to a hospital, where Rivera was pronounced dead.
