Before police announced that the suspect was dead, Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus, who was at the search scene, said officers had not had any communication with the shooter since the initial incident. The extend of their injuries are unknown at this time but Trooper Steven Nevel says the officer is expected to survive.

Authorities say a police officer has been shot in an upstate NY village and a suspect is barricaded inside a home.

The Associated Press reported Amthor was shot while responding to a domestic disturbance. "I ask Orange County residents to keep Chief Amthor and his family in their prayers". Police surrounded the home for several hours. State troopers, State Police investigators, and a negotiator were on the scene after the mid-morning shooting.
