An army of cops is expected to line a Manhattan courtroom Monday as the career criminal who shot NYPD Officer Randolph Holder dead is sentenced.
Tyrone Howard, 32, faces life behind bars for shooting Holder, 33, during a foot chase in East Harlem in 2015.
Reached on Sunday, Holder’s tearful mother said she had “no words.”
Holder’s father, Randolph Sr., is expected to address the court before Howard’s sentencing.
Howard was involved in a gunfight on East 102nd Street in October 2015, and fled north on a stolen bicycle.
Holder and his partner pursued Howard and confronted him on the ramp of an East 120th Street footbridge minutes later, but Howard pulled a pistol and shot Holder in the head.
A jury found Howard guilty of murder last month.
