Trooper involved in deadly shooting identified
The state trooper involved in a deadly shooting Wednesday in East Bloomfield has been identified.
State Police say Trooper Adam Latulipe, a four-year veteran of the force, shot and killed a 17-year-old Wednesday night at a home on State Route 64.
Investigators say the teen lunged at the trooper with a knife twice before Latulipe shot and killed him.
The trooper was there checking on an anonymous tip that someone in the home was threatening to kill a person.
Officials have not identified the teen yet.
The state Attorney General’s Office confirmed a knife was found at the scene and is investigating the shooting.
