NYS Police Release Autopsy Results for Trooper Killed in the Line of Duty

More information is being released following the death of NYS Trooper Nicholas Clark. 

State Police say an autopsy was conducted on Trooper Clark and determined he died after being struck with buckshot from a 12 gauge shotgun. 

State Police say Steven Kiley, the man accused of shooting Trooper Clark, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. His autopsy revealed that he also had been shot in the chest by law enforcement. A shot, authorities say, that would have killed him 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 a.m. at Alfred University.
