Police from throughout the tri-state paid tribute to fallen ATF agent John Capano Friday morning in Seaford. 

Capano, 51, of Massapequa, was picking up cancer medication at  for his elderly father shortly before 2 p.m. Dec. 31 when James McGoey, of Hampton Bays, entered the store demanding cash and drugs, prompting the ATF agent and two other men to confront the suspect as he fled out the front door. A shootout ensued and both Capano and McGoey were killed.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder was among the many dignitaries, police officers and ATF agents on hand at for the funeral mass Friday morning.

Inconsolable widow Dori Capano stood by with her head on the shoulder of her father-in-law, James Capano, as the casket was brought into the church.
