The man who police say shot and killed a state trooper before turning the gun on himself had a stockpile of weapons, New York State Police released Friday.

The new information comes following searches at suspect Steven Kiley’s home.

Friday, troopers say Kiley, who worked as a principal in Bradford prior to the deadly shooting, had 12 illegal guns, including eight assault rifles, one rifle and three handguns. Investigators say they also found two silencers and “numerous high-capacity magazine.”

The investigation into the case is ongoing, state police say.

Troopers also released the results of the autopsies for Trooper Nicholas Clark and Kiley on Friday.

The autopsies found Clark was killed after being hit with buckshot from a 12-gauge shotgun.

The medical examiner also found Kiley died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head. But, troopers say he was also hit in the chest by gunfire that could have been fatal, if Kiley hadn’t shot himself.

Funeral services for Trooper Clark is set for this weekend.
