Legendary Det. Steven McDonald Passes

At 1:09 p.m. on January 10, 2017, Det. Steven McDonald of the New York Police Department passed away.

Said Detectives’ Endowment Association (DEA) President Michael J. Palladino, “Steven was an exceptional human being who should not be defined by the shooting that paralyzed him, but by what he accomplished in life after it happened.” Palladino added, “As a family, the McDonalds have a remarkable way of navigating adversity. Patti-Ann McDonald is a woman of great character and a profile in courage.”

Their son Conor has already exhibited tremendous strength of character by following in his father’s footsteps and becoming a New York City Police Officer. Our hearts go out to Conor and Patti Ann, as well as all of Steven’s friends, family, and colleagues, on our loss of such a wonderful man.”
