The widow of slain NYPD Officer Wenjian Liu gave birth early Tuesday to a baby girl conceived from sperm retrieved and frozen in the hours before his death in December 2014, according to a high ranked law enforcement source.
Liu's widow, Pei "Sanny" Xia Chen, named the baby "Angel" as a tribute to her slain hero husband - whose police hat is now next to her bed at New York-Presbyterian Hospital on the Upper East Side, said the pal, fellow cop widow Maria Dziergowski. Detective Liu's parents, Wei Tang Liu and Xiu Yan Li, were there as Sanny Liu gave birth at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, police said.

"I got pregnant through the [in-vitro fertilization] procedure", Chen said.
Netanyahu Bars Military From Evacuating Settlers Occupying Hebron Building
The settlers' move in Hebron comes with Israeli-Palestinian tensions high over new security measures at a Jerusalem holy site. Israeli security forces arrived at the scene Tuesday and blocked anyone else from entering the building.
Liu was slain on December 20, 2014, along with Officer Rafael Ramos by Ismaaiyl Brinsley as they sat inside their marked patrol auto at the intersection of Myrtle and Tompkins Aves.in Bedford-Stuyvesant.
Police said Detective Liu and his wife had always planned to have children, but their plans were cut short when the detective's life was taken.
The shooting occurred hours after the gunman, 28-year-old Ismaaiyl Abdula Brinsley, warned on social media he planned an attack in retribution for recent United States police killings of unarmed black men. He had posted on Instagram that he wanted to put "wings on pigs" and referenced Eric Garner, whose police chokehold death led to protests against the NYPD.
