Vice President Joe Biden will attend the funeral of slain New York police officer Rafael, the White House says.

The funeral service will be held at Christ Tabernacle Church in Queens at 10 a.m. on Saturday.

Ramos was one of two NYPD officers shot and killed last week in what city officials describe as an “execution-style” ambush.
