A wake will be held Monday for the Nanuet native slain by a laid-off former co-worker outside the Empire State Building last week.

Steven Ercolino, also a former Warwick resident, was shot in the head on West 33rd Street Friday morning by Jeffrey Johnson, 58, who police said harbored a workplace grudge from their time together at Hazan Import Corp.

Ercolino's family will receive friends from 5-9 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday at the Ballard-Durand Funeral Home, 2 Maple Ave., South Broadway, White Plains.

After Ercolino was killed, Johnson, dressed in a business suit and carrying a briefcase, turned his gun on police. The ensuing shootout left Johnson dead and nine other people wounded on the sidewalk.

A grand jury is expected to investigate whether police used proper procedures in responding to the gunman at 9 a.m. Friday when the sidewalks were bustling with pedestrians.

The funeral for Ercolino will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Our Lady of Sorrows Church in White Plains.
