NY police officer shot, suspect found dead after barricade situation

Police chief shot in Orange County standoff with suspect continues

Amthor and four other officers had gone to Bostick's third-floor apartment to investigate a reported domestic dispute. While speaking with the suspect, there was an exchange of gunfire, and the officer was hit in the shoulder, Tripodo said. Amthor, who is also police chief of the neighboring town Montgomery, is expected to be OK and is being treated at a hospital.

Maybrook is a community of about 3,000 people in Orange County, about 60 miles outside of New York City.

Authorities have confirmed that a man who shot a police chief during a standoff in Orange County fatally shot himself.

Police at the scene after the shooting included SWAT teams from Orange and Sullivan counties, state police and officers from several municipal departments.

The Associated Press reported Amthor was shot while responding to a domestic disturbance.

Neuhaus said the shooting "serves as a reminder of the dangers of police work and how deserving of our support and encouragement law enforcement is". The chief was said to be conscious and talking when he was taken to the hospital.

Barricades have been set up around Abbey Avenue, about two blocks from Route 208.

State Police say the standoff is ongoing.

State Troopers, State Police investigators and a negotiator are on scene.
