Another Sad Day

Today, a New York State Trooper was shot and killed and another wounded while trying to apprehend a suspect, Travis Trim, who shot another Trooper yesterday during a traffic stop in Margertville in Delaware County..

The other two Troopers will recover. Both Troopers shot today were members of the Troopers MRT team. One Trooper was killed and the other shot in the arm; he is in an Albany hospital in stable but serious condition. From what I understand, the officer shot yesterday was hit in his protective vest and suffered relatively minor injuries.

The house where Trim was holed up caught fire, perhaps from tear gas or intentionally set by the suspect.

More as the story progresses.
