New York Police Officer Shot, Killed by School Principal While Responding to 911 Call

A New York State Police trooper was shot and killed Monday while responding to a domestic dispute call, WENY reported. Nicholas Clark, 29, was responding to a call about a suicidal person around 3:30 a.m.

Clark was shot and killed at the scene by a person identified as Steven Kiley, 43, according to WENY. Kiley, who also died, was the principal of the Bradford Central School District in Bradford, New York. Kiley was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the Elmira Star-Gazette.

Clark joined the New York State Police in 2015, according to WHEC-TV. He was remembered as a star athlete and former football player, WSYR-TV reported.

New York State Police First Deputy Superintendent Chris Fiore called Clark's death a “terrible loss” at a Monday press conference.

“A situation like this makes no sense,” Governor Andrew Cuomo said at the press conference. “A 29-year-old with his whole life ahead of him. He just wanted to do good things.”

Police said they were continuing an investigation into Clark's death. An administration page for the Bradford Central School District appeared to no longer have information about Kiley on Monday afternoon.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
