Auxiliary Police Officer Nicholas T. Pekearo was murdered on Wednesday night, March 14, 2007, in front of Demarco's Pizzeria in Greenwich Village when a gunman chased him down the street and killed him execution style. Pekearo and fellow auxiliary police officer Eugene Marshalik were trying to stop a gunman who entered the pizzeria and started shooting.

On March 16, 2007 there was a viewing for Nicholas T. Pekearo at Reddens Funeral Home for family and friends and New York Cool photographer Angelo Rivera was on hand to take these images. According to the Saturday March 17th edition of the Daily News, "Last night, about 1,000 NYPD officers and auxiliaries, along with Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, streamed into Reddens Funeral Home on W.14th St. to say farewell to Pekearo, who lived and died in the neighborhood."
