A New York state trooper was shot dead Sunday night while responding to a domestic dispute in Jefferson County.
Trooper Joel R. Davis was killed as he approached a residence in the town of Theresa after reports of shots being fired, New York State Police Superintendent George P. Beach said in a statement.
Justin D. Walters, 32, surrendered without incident, the statement said.
The body of his wife, Nichole V. Walters, 27, was found in the driveway with multiple gunshot wounds, Beach said at a Monday afternoon press conference.
Walters is an active-duty staff sergeant stationed at Fort Drum, Beach’s statement said.
