Johnson City Patrolman D.W. Smith Remembered

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A year has passed since police officer David W. Smith was fatally shot in Johnson City.

Patrolman Smith was 43 when he died shortly after he was wounded on Harrison Street on the morning of March 31, 2014.

The man who shot Smith, James Clark of Greene, was wounded by another police officer. Clark died a short time later.

Law enforcement officers from many agencies attended the funeral service for Smith. He had been a member of the Johnson City Police Department for more than 18 years.

Flowers have been placed at the scene of the shooting in front of the Southern Tier Imaging office.

Colleagues, friends and family members are expected to gather for a brief private service to remember Smith.

A monument is expected to be erected outside the Johnson Police Department headquarters in the next month or two.

The inaugural D.W. Smith Jr. Remembrance Run and Walk is to be held in Johnson City on April 12.
