NYS Trooper attacked with knife, suspect shot and killed


A 17 year old suspect was pronounced dead in East Bloomfield NY

From the NYS Police

On November 15th, 2023, at approximately 6:40 p.m., a New York State Trooper was involved in an officer-involved shooting in the town of East Bloomfield, NY, Ontario County.

The Trooper responded to 2283 State Route 64 in East Bloomfield to investigate an anonymous online tip received by the Department of Homeland Security & Emergency Services (DHSES), which alleged someone at the residence was talking about killing someone. The Trooper began to interview a 17-year-old male on the side porch, who immediately pulled a concealed knife and lunged toward the Trooper, causing both of them to fall to the ground. As they got to their feet, the suspect charged at the Trooper with the knife still in hand, and the Trooper discharged his Division-issued firearm, striking and fatally injuring the suspect.

Pursuant to Executive Law Section 70-b, the New York State Attorney General’s Office is investigating the incident in conjunction with the New York State Police. The investigation is ongoing, and future updates will be posted on the NYSP Newsroom as they become available.
