BABYLON, N.Y. (AP) ' A New York police officer killed during a botched robbery in Brooklyn is being laid to rest in his Long Island community ' an NYPD veteran with 12 medals and more than 200 career arrests.

A funeral Mass for Peter Figoski is scheduled for Monday morning in Babylon. The 47-year-old father of four daughters who lived in nearby West Babylon is to be buried there.

The veteran NYPD officer was shot in the face last week as he entered a Brooklyn apartment.
