Thousands of family, friends, law enforcement officers from across the US and Canada and the public paid tribute on Sunday to Trooper Nicholas Clark at a memorial service at his Alma Mater, Alfred University.
Trooper Clark was shot and killed last Monday when responding to a domestic incident last week before his killer took his own life. Autopsy results show Clark was killed by buckshot fired by Steven Kiley. Kiley sustained a gunshot wound to his chest before he took his own life.
State Police investigators 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.
Trooper Clark was posted to the Auburn barracks from January to August of last year before he transferred to Bath in Steuben County to be closer to his hometown.
