NYC corners named for slain aux. police

A pair of Manhattan street corners have been renamed for two volunteer police officers slain while confronting a rampaging gunman. Unarmed auxiliary officers Eugene Marshalik and Nicholas Pekearo were shot down two years ago Saturday near the intersection of Sullivan and Bleecker streets in Greenwich Village.

The gunman was David Garvin, who began his shooting spree by killing a bartender at a pizzeria.

Garvin was killed by full-time police officers as he tried to get away.

The police commissioner and City Council speaker were on hand for the renaming ceremony Saturday.

Marshalik was a 19-year-old student at nearby New York University. The 28-year-old Pekearo had written a science-fiction novel called "The Wolfman."
