Steil, 46, was chasing a fugitive last Monday when he was shot with a sawed-off shotgun.

He leaves behind a wife and two little boys.

Just days ago, he talked about making a quick recovery and returning back to the force where he had spent the last 20 years, most recently having worked in special ops in the 9th precinct.
