Dozens of City Police Department colleagues recently joined the family and friends of Det. Randolph Holder in Far Rockaway to honor the slain cop with a street dedication.
Briar Place at Collier Avenue was officially co-named “Detective Randolph Holder Way” on Friday. Holder, 33, a Guyanese immigrant with five years on the force, was gunned down on Oct. 20, 2015 while responding to a call of shots fired in East Harlem. Tyrone “Peanut” Howard, 30, a recidivist criminal with suspected gang ties, was convicted earlier this year of Holder’s murder.
City Councilwoman Vanessa Gibson, chairwoman of the Council Public Safety Committee (l.) and Maria Otero, executive director of Administration for the NYPD, joined Holder’s dad, Randolph Sr., at Friday’s ceremony.
