Gov. Cuomo directs flags to half staff in honor of Trooper Clark

STEUBEN COUNTY--Gov. Andrew Cuomo today, Monday, July 2, directed flags on all state government buildings be flown at half-staff in honor of New York State Police Trooper Nicholas F. Clark, who died in the line of duty in Steuben County. They will be lowered until Trooper Clark's interment. Earlier, Cuomo met with state troopers and local law enforcement to receive a briefing on Trooper Clark's death.
First Deputy Superintendent of the New York State Police Chris Fiore provided details of the events that occurred in the early morning hours, Monday.
"This morning at approximately 3:30 a.m. members of the New York State Police, the Steuben County Sheriff's Office and the Corning Police Department responded to a call of a suicidal subject barricaded at his resident in the town of Erwin, Steuben County. During the course of the response, Trooper Nicholas Clark was shot and killed by the suspect. The suspect was later found deceased in the residence from an apparent gunshot wound.
Trooper Clark, who was 29 years old, lived in Troupsburg, New York. He graduated from the 203rd session of the state police basic school in September of 2015. He was presently assigned to SP Bath, Troop E. He is survived by his mother, father, and brother, who have all been notified. This is a terrible loss for the New York State Police and our thoughts and prayers are with Trooper Clark and his family.
The incident remains under investigation, and State Police will make additional information available as it comes in."
The suspect has been identified by police as 43-year old Steven M. Kiley. Kiley was principal of Bradford Central School.
During the conference at Painted Post, Gov. Cuomo said "A 29-year-old trooper, a stellar trooper with an extraordinary record, his whole life before him. Great athlete. Well accomplished. He wanted to do one thing which was help people. And help public service and that's what the New York State Police afford, an opportunity to give back to your community, to help your community. To help other families. {A} Situation like this makes no sense."
This incident remains under investigation.
