Gunfight: Two officers and a shooter are SHOT dead in New York after responding to 911 call about stolen car


A City of Syracuse police officer and Onondaga County Sheriff’s deputy were shot and killed in the town of Salina on Sunday night.

The two whose names would not be disclosed for now were among the officers who responded to a home on Darien Drive to investigate a stolen vehicle, Syracuse Police say.

What Happened?

The police who lost their lives attempted to pull over the suspicious vehicle near the Tipperary Hill intersection of Emerson Avenue and Hamilton Street but the vehicle sped off.

Police then used license plate information to track it to the registered owner’s home on Darien Drive, per statement from police.

They later asked for assistance from the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office because they learned additional information the individual driving the vehicle might be armed.

Officers from the city and county arrived at the residence on Darien Drive about the same time – though it’s not clear how many officers or deputies arrived as part of the initial response.

The Exchange of Gunfire

While they were inspecting the vehicle and saw what appeared to be guns inside, they heard what sounded like someone manipulating a firearm from inside the residence.

Moments later, there was an exchange of gunfire between at least one suspect and the officers and deputies.

The officer, deputy, and suspect were all hit, and rushed to the hospital, where they are pronounced dead.

As it is

Police haven’t said how many shots were fired or who hit whom.

While the suspected shooter is dead, the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office was working overnight to get the court’s permission to enter the home to search for others involved in the initial crime.

There’s no indication additional people were involved in the deadly shooting.
