Without mentioning how Sean Bell died, Mayor Bloomberg signed a bill Monday designating the site of one of the city’s most shocking police shootings as “Sean Bell Way.

Bell, 23, was killed in a fusillade of 50 police bullets Nov. 25, 2006, just hours before his scheduled wedding. The shooting erupted on Liverpool St., near the Kalua Cabaret in Jamaica, where Bell’s bachelor party was held.

Police said Bell was armed, but no weapon was ever found. Three detectives were acquitted of state charges last year, but a federal civil rights investigation is continuing. Also still pending is a civil damage suit against the city.

Bell’s name was included in an omnibus bill with 70 street namings approved by the City Council. Bloomberg’s only mention of Bell came when he read out the designated street namings. But he cordially greeted Bell’s family at the end of the ceremony and posed with them for news and other photographers.

“Sean deserved this,” Bell’s intended bride, Nicole Paultre-Bell, told the mayor and a packed audience in City Hall’s Blue Room.

The mother of Bell’s two daughters, Jada, now 7, and Jordyn, 3, Paultre-Bell pointedly added, “But we also have to remember that when my daughters walk down that street we’ll always remember those 50 shots.”
