Nonprofit renovates family home of slain NYPD detective

A New York nonprofit focused on supporting veterans, first responders and their families has completed renovations on slain NYPD Detective Wenjian Liu's home in Gravesend.



The Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation -- named in honor of a firefighter who died in the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks -- raised money to pay off the mortgages for Liu and his partner, Detective Rafael Ramos.



The organization raised so much money that it had enough left to fully renovate the officers' homes for their families. It unveiled the $100,000 renovations on Liu's home Tuesday afternoon.



Work on Ramos' home is underway.



Both officers were fatally shot while on duty in Brooklyn last December.



Tunnels To Towers is also raising money to pay off the home of a police officer who was shot and killed while pumping gas in Texas last Friday.
