Calling hours for fallen police officer David Smith will be held from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at a funeral home just north of Binghamton in Port Dickinson. Officer Smith's funeral is Friday in Johnson City.

Police have identified the shooter as James Clark, a medical technician. They say he grabbed the 43 year old officer's gun at a healthcare facility and shot him. Clark was then killed by other officers who arrived later.

No word so far on a reason why Clark did what he did.
