Fatal Police Involved Shooting On I-84
As Troopers arrived on the scene of a disabled vehicle, just west of Stewart International Airport, between New Windsor and Montgomery, another call was received of a subject walking along the westbound shoulder of I-84, near exit 5.The responding Troopers leave the disabled vehicle to respond to the report of a subject walking. When they encounter the individual, one member exited the troop car and engaged the individual in conversation, while the other drove the vehicle beside them.
A preliminary investigation revealed the subject was not cooperative with Troopers, and refused to comply with commands multiple times. When the subject made a movement to enter the Troop car, one member fired his Division issued firearm, striking the subject. The Troopers immediately called for assistance and treated the subject at the scene. The subject, whose identity is not being released at this time, was transported to Orange Regional Medical Center where he died.
