Special Investigator Thomas Neilan was shot and killed when he attempted to take action against two men who abducted him at gunpoint during a robbery in Queens, New York.

The men forced him to drive to another location where Investigator Neilan drew his weapon, identified himself, and fired a shot at the suspect. At the same time the subjects returned fire, striking him in the head twice and once in the neck.

Investigator Neilan had served with the New York State Office of Attorney General for two years.

I said a little prayer today for Investigator Neilan and his family. He may be gone but never forgotten. He will always be a New York HERO.
