KIRKWOOD, N.Y. -- A shootout with a state trooper ends with a dead suspect, and an injured officer just outside of Binghamton Monday night.
Just before 6:30 p.m., state police say Trooper Timothy Conklin, a 28-year veteran, stopped a vehicle in the town of Kirkwood.
The 30-year-old driver, Nicholas Philhower (pictured), allegedly opened fire and exchanged gunfire with the trooper.
The suspect died, and Trooper Conklin was sent to the hospital with injuries not considered to be life-threatening.
State police say the suspect's mother called police after her son took her car without permission.
The investigation is ongoing.
