Bronx street renamed for slain NYPD officer from Huntington
An NYPD officer from Long Island who was killed in the line of duty had a street in the Bronx renamed for him Wednesday.
Purdy Street between Metropolitan Avenue and Saint Raymond's Avenue was renamed Sgt. Paul Tuozzolo Way.
The NYPD says Tuozzolo, who lived in Huntington, was the school sergeant in the 43rd Precinct and developed a very close relationship with schools in that area.
The 19-year veteran of the force was gunned in November while chasing a suspect from Brentwood.
