Unadilla Man Shot Dead by New York State Police
The investigation is underway after an Otsego County man was shot dead by a New York State Trooper.
State police say they were called to a reported domestic dispute on Lyons Street in the Village of Unadilla at 7:20 p.m. December 22 and were confronted by 24-year-old Mark Beilby who was armed with a knife.
A trooper shot at Beilby when he advanced toward the officer and refused to drop the knife, threatening the trooper.
A round hit Beilby and he was transported to Tri-Town Hospital.
He was then transferred to Wilson Memorial Regional Medical Center in Johnson City where he was pronounced dead.
As per normal protocol in an officer-involved shooting, the New York State Attorney General’s Office is investigating in conjunction with the New York State Police.
