ATF  will honor one of its agents who was killed trying to stop a pharmacy robbery on New Year’s Eve in New York, Newsday reports.

The Aug. 23 ceremony at ATF’s national headquarters in Washington D.C. will celebrate the life of Senior Special Agent John F. Capano. His family will receive the agency’s Medal of Valor.

NYPD Officer Joseph Arbia, an off-duty officer who shot and killed the suspect, will receive the Jake Kuredjian Memorial Award for trying to keep an agent safe, according to the AP.

Capano, 51, was shot by another off-duty cop who mistook the agent for robber.
