$1.3M Raised for Daughters of Slain NYPD Officer

Peter Figoski's oldest daughter said the outpouring of support is "unbelievable and amazing."

Well-wishers have raised $1.3 million for a college fund for the four daughters of slain NYPD officer Peter Figoski.

The officer's oldest daughter Christine Figoski tells the New York Post that the outpouring of support is "unbelievable and amazing."

Christine is a student at SUNY Oneonta. Sister Caitlyn is at SUNY Plattsburgh, while Caroline and Corinne are high school students in West Babylon on Long Island.

Their father was gunned down on Dec. 12 while responding to a robbery in Brooklyn.

Five men, including shooting suspect Lamont Pride, have pleaded not guilty to murder charges. All are being held without bail.

Figoski was a 22-year police veteran. His funeral last week in West Babylon drew 20,000 fellow officers, family and friends.
