Officers quickly responded and confronted 34-year-old Thomas Bonds, who was shot dead nearby. The gun used in the attack was recovered.
Familia was rushed to a hospital but died while undergoing surgery.
The New York Post reports that Bonds had a long rap sheet, including an arrest in 2001 for beating a police officer with brass knuckles.
Familia's partner frantically called for help after the attack, screaming, "My partner's been shot!" repeatedly.
