Detective Rodney J. Andrews and Detective James V. Nemorin were shot and killed on Monday, March 10, 2003, during an undercover operation while attempting to purchase illegal firearms on Staten Island.

Detective Andrews was appointed to the Police Department on July 18, 1996. He served in the 23rd Precinct, the Manhattan North Task Force, Brooklyn North Narcotics, and the Firearms Investigation Unit. While assigned to the Manhattan North Task Force, he was honored with a Meritorious Police Duty award for his work in initiating and conducting a fencing operation that led to 12 arrests. Detective Andrews was 34 years old. He is survived by his wife, Maryann; his children, Christian, 12, and Justin, 11; his mother, Patricia Marion; and his sister, Neulinda Bryant.

The family has requested that the viewing and funeral services remain private. Representatives of the Office of the DCPI will be present at the service to assist members of the media. A flatbed truck will be set up across the street from the church as a camera location. A press area will also be reserved directly beside the front entrance to the church.
