A Long Island, N.Y. town honored a fallen native police officer in a touching way after he was killed in shootout in New York City this week, Newsday reported.

Video released on Twitter showed workers from the department of transportation in Huntington, N.Y. painting a thin blue line down the residential street where Sgt. Paul Tuozzolo's family lives.

Tuozzolo, 41, of the NYPD, was killed in a "Wild West-style" shootout with an ex-convict near Parkchester, The Bronx on Friday.

A fellow officer was badly injured in the incident by Manuel Rosales, who allegedly committed an armed break-in of his estranged wife's home in the area, according to the New York Post.

Rosales, 35, was shot and killed after a short vehicle pursuit and a shootout with Tuozzolo and the other officer.

"Who knows how many lives he saved by killing this guy?” Policemen's Benevolent Association president Pat Lynch said of Tuozzolo, according to the Post.

Rosales had 17 prior arrests.

Tuozzolo leaves behind his wife and two children, ages 3 and 4.
