Glenville cop shot in overnight domestic, suspect killed

GLENVILLE– A Glenville police officer is in stable condition after suffering a gunshot wound while responding to a domestic dispute at a Pashley Road residence around 11:00 p.m.  on Friday, police say.

Glenville and Scotia Police were on the scene when Brian Skinner, 32, allegedly exited the home and came at responding officers with a weapon. Police then shot and killed the man.

A 911 caller allegedly told dispatchers Skinner had a gun in the house.

The officer, whose name has not yet been released, sustained a gunshot wound to the abdomen under his bullet proof vest. He was transported by helicopter to Albany Medical Center and underwent surgery. Glenville Police Chief Stephen Janik told WNYT that he expects his officer to make a full recovery.

The Albany County Medical Examiner will perform an autopsy on Skinner’s body later this weekend.

The New York State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigations and Major Crimes Unit has taken over the investigation into the incident.
