A foundation has been created for the family of an off-duty federal agent who was killed in an attempted pharmacy robbery on Long Island.

The Federal Drug Agents Foundation announced the fund Wednesday, the first day of John Capano's  wake.

Capano died Saturday, apparently by friendly fire from another law enforcement official, while trying to intervene in the Seaford robbery. The suspect was also killed.

Capano was married with two children.

 

Contact information for the fund:

FDAF/Capano Family Fund

c/o the Federal Drug Agents Foundation

380 North Broadway

Jericho, N.Y. 11753

All of the money raised will go to his family, the FDAF said.
