State police uncover illegal weapons

STEUBEN COUNTY--Police officers from throughout the state converged at Alfred University, Sunday, July 8 for the funeral of New York State Police Trooper Nicholas F. Clark. Clark died in the line of duty in Steuben County after being shot responding to a call. Flags across the state were flown at half-staff in honor of Trooper Clark.

First Deputy Superintendent of the New York State Police Chris Fiore provided details of the events that occurred in the early morning hours, Monday, July 2.
"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 {residence} 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."
The suspect has been identified by police as 43-year old Steven M. Kiley. Kiley was the principal of Bradford Central School. The police also reported during their investigation they recovered 12 illegal firearms owned by Kiley, including eight assault rifles, one rifle and three handguns. Two sound suppressors and numerous high capacity magazines were also recovered.
An autopsy showed Trooper Clark "died as a result of being struck with buckshot from a 12-gauge shotgun."
Kiley's autopsy said "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."
"Trooper Clark, who was 29 years old, lived in Troupsburg, New York," explained Fiore. "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."
This incident remains under investigation.
