A New York State Trooper was shot and killed early this morning outside of Corning.
State Police say 29 year-old Nicholas Clark died shortly after 3:30 this morning after responding with other law enforcement officers to a call in the Steuben County Town of Erwin.
The occupant, 43 year-old Steven Kiley, had barricaded himself in the home and was reportedly suicidal.
After shooting Trooper Clark, police say Kiley shot and killed himself.
Shortly before noon today, a State Police motorcade of a dozen troop cars accompanied a coroner’s van with Clark’s body to Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton for an autopsy.
Clark lived in Troupsburg, New York and is survived by his mother, father and brother.
He joined the State Police in 2015 and was assigned to the office in Bath.
Governor Andrew Cuomo joined police for a news briefing in Painted Post this afternoon.
