(WBNG) — It was a heartbreaking sight for drivers on New York Route 17 on Monday.
Dozens of New York State Police cars with flashing lights followed the coroner’s vehicle transporting a trooper killed in a Steuben County shooting.
The procession arrived at Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton around 12 p.m. Monday. That’s where the trooper’s autopsy will be performed, according to hospital officials.
An official with knowledge of the investigation confirmed to The Associated Press the trooper was killed while responding to a domestic incident early Monday south of Corning, near the Pennsylvania state line.
Authorities say the suspect has also been killed. No further details have been released.
A Lourdes Hospital spokesperson says the hospital is still open and people needing medical assistance can still do so.
