DA: Broome Deputy’s Shooting of Windsor Man was Justified
A review by the Broome County district attorney's office has concluded a sheriff's deputy acted appropriately when he shot an armed man in the town of Windsor.
45-year-old Jamie Crowley of Cascade Valley Road was shot July 3 after he allegedly refused to drop a .44 caliber revolver when ordered to do so by deputies.
Crowley was shot in the shoulder by Deputy Tommy Tran. He was treated for his injuries at Wilson Medical Center in Johnson City.
In a statement released Thursday morning, District Attorney Michael Korchak said a thorough review of police reports, witness statements and body camera recording was conducted.
Korchak said it has been determined Tran "acted lawfully, justifiably and in conformity" with the policies of the sheriff's office and New York state.
Crowley has been charged with menacing a police officer and reckless endangerment. He also faces weapon possession counts after a search warrant was executed at his home.
