Members of the New York Army National Guard Reserves 1156th Engineering Company carry the coffin of fellow soldier Noel Polanco, 22, who was posthumously promoted to Sergeant. Polanco was shot and killed while in his car by an NYPD detective during a traffic stop. He was found to be unarmed. Two companions were with him at the time, one of which was an off-duty NYPD officer. Officials stated the reason for the traffic stop as erratic driving.
