Cayuga County Sheriff Dave Gould paid tribute to slain State Trooper Nicholas Clark on the Lawman Thursday segment on the Finger Lakes Morning News.
Trooper Clark was shot and killed on July 2 while responding to a domestic call in Steuben County. He was posted to the Auburn barracks last year.
Deputies pitched in last weekend so that Auburn based troopers could attend the service for their fellow trooper on Sunday.
Trooper Clark played football at Alfred University and had a tryout with the Buffalo Bills before joining the State Police. He was 29 years old.
