An ATF agent who was killed trying to prevent a pharmacy robbery in his hometown in New York had a portion of a street named after him over the weekend, Newsday reports.

Senior Special Agent John F. Capano Avenue is the new name of Waverly Avenue at Seamans Neck Road where Capano grew up in his childhood home.

Capano, 51, was trying to prevent a robbery at a pharmacy when he and the suspect began grappling over the phone. A retired Nassau police lieutenant fatally shot Capano, thinking he was the robber.

Last week the Nassau County district attorney’s office said it would not file criminal charges against the retired lieutenant because he was trying to defend himself when Capano fired.
