Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: NY   USA   Thu. Jul. 04, 2002
Summary: Deputy Kevin Tarsia was shot and killed in Kirkwood, New York at approximately 0400 hours, when he encountered possible suspects from a burglary at a firearms store in Great Bend, Pennsylvania.

Deputy Tarsia was patrolling Grange Hall Park, just above the New York - Pennsylvania border, when the incident occurred.

The suspects were transferring the guns they had stolen from one vehicle to another when they were approached by Deputy Tarsia. Two of the suspects opened fire on Deputy Tarsia, firing a total of 15 rounds at him. After killing Deputy Tarsia, the suspects stole his service weapon and several other items from his patrol car and fled.

All three suspects were captured three days later. Two will be charged in New York with first-degree murder, and the third suspect will be charged with third-degree criminal possession of a weapon. All three suspects also face charges of burglary in Pennsylvania. Two of the suspects were sentenced to life in prison and the third is awaiting trial.

Deputy Tarsia was the first deputy from his agency to be killed in the line of duty since the agency was created in 1806. He had been employed with the Broome County Sheriff's Office for 13 years.
