The police commissioner visited him.

New York Police Department Officer Andrew McCormack fired
inadvertently as the raid unfolded Saturday morning in the Bronx.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the investigation.

His mother co-founded a support group for the families of slain officers.
