A New York State Trooper was killed in the line of duty in Corning early this morning.

He is survived by his mother, father and brother. Police negotiators and back up arrived on scene and attempted to make contact with the shooter. When officers entered the residence, the suspect, 43 year old Steven Kiley was found dead of a gunshot wound. 

Governor Andrew Cuomo arrived at the New York State Police barracks in Painted Post and was briefed before a press conference was held this afternoon. 

The investigation continues.

Absolutely. Watched 27 Trooper, Sherriff and Corning Police cars drive past my house this morning after leaving the scene. Just heart broken for all the Family, Friends and Co-Workers of both men.

Update:

On July 2, 2018 Trooper Nicholas F. Clark was shot and killed by Steven M. Kiley after responding to 10041 Welch Road in the Town of Erwin, Steuben County.  On July 2, 2018, an autopsy was conducted at Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton and determined that Trooper Clark died as a result of being struck with buckshot from a 12-gauge shotgun. 

On July 3, 2018, an autopsy of Steven Kiley was conducted at Lourdes Hospital and determined that he died as a result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.  He also sustained a gunshot wound from law enforcement to his chest, which would have been fatal had he not taken his own life.

During the investigation, State Police recovered 12 illegal firearms owned by Kiley, including eight assault rifles, one rifle and three handguns. Two silencers and numerous high capacity magazines were also recovered. 

Funeral Services for Trooper Nicholas Clark will be held on Sunday, July 8, 2018 at 11 AM at Alfred University.  

The Investigation into Trooper Clark’s death is continuing.
