HOWARD BEACH (WABC) -- A special honor was posthumously bestowed on two fallen NYPD officers who were shot and killed in the line of duty last year.

Detectives Wenjian Lu and Rafael Ramos were among those honored at the Sergeants Benevolent Association's 106th annual Heroism Award Ceremony in Howard Beach.

Detectives Liu and Ramos were ambushed by a lone gunman as they sat in their patrol car in Brooklyn on December 20th.

Also honored was Officer Dennis Guerra, who died after being overcome by smoke and fumes when he and his partner answered a 911 call of a fire in the hallway of a city owned building in Coney Island in April 2014.
