Mora and his partner, Det. Jason Rivera, were shot while responding to a 911 call on Jan. 21. Rivera, 22, died that night and was laid to rest last week.

Mora underwent two surgeries but never regained consciousness. He was put on life support so his heart, liver, pancreas and kidneys could be recovered for transplant.

The 27-year-old joined the department in 2018, the same year he graduated from CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice with a bachelor's degree. He had 35 arrests on his record and aspirations to become a sergeant.
