An autopsy report released Friday by State Police show Trooper Nicholas Clark was killed last Monday after being struck with a buckshot from a 12-gauge shotgun.
The man accused of killing Trooper Clark died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Steven Kiley’s autopsy showed he sustained a gunshot wound to his chest when he exchanged gunfire with police. The autopsy claims that wound would have been fatal if the Bradford Central School principal didn’t end up taking his own life.
Troopers also say they recovered a dozen illegal firearms owned by Kiley, including eight assault rifles, one rifle, and three handguns. Two silencers and numerous high capacity magazines were also recovered.
The 29-year-old Clark was killed in an exchange of gunfire after he responded to the report that Kiley was suicidal last Monday morning just outside of Corning.
Calling hours for Nicholas Clark will be held at Alfred University’s McLane Physical Education Center from 1 to 6pm Saturday, with a funeral service at the same location scheduled for 11 o’clock Sunday morning.
