Police chief shot in upstate NY, suspect barricaded in home

Police gather Tuesday near the residence where the suspect was barricaded

Michael Gailie, an Abbey Avenue resident who lives a couple doors away from the home where the shooter was believed to be located, said police had evacuated homes in the neighborhood and closed off Abbey Avenue and several other roads.

Officials say Chief Arnold "Butch" Amthor was wounded around 9:20 a.m. Tuesday in the village of Maybrook, 55 miles (88 kilometers) north of New York City.

A police chief responding to a domestic disturbance call was shot in the shoulder during a confrontation with a barricaded suspect in New York's Orange County Tuesday, authorities say.

Police have not released any details about the dispute that brought them there, but neighbors say the couple just moved in two weeks ago. "The police officer was shot in the upper torso shoulder area", State Police Major Joseph Tripodo said. "We have a shooting protocol anytime an officer discharges their weapon", a police official said.

Neuhaus said he visited Amthor at the hospital.

Authorities say troopers and a police negotiator are on scene. Later in the day, both state police and the district attorney said the suspect had died. Officers are wearing helmets and vests, and some are carrying assault rifles.
