Investigators following 'promising leads' in Saturday's shooting

(Continued)

The Niagara County Sheriffs Office K-9 Unit and the New York State Parks Police assisted in the search for the gunman. 

Investigators said neither Dix nor the occupants of the van were cooperative in explaining what triggered the exchange of gunfire between them. The explanations were described as “sketchy.”

The officer involved in the shooting has been placed on administrative duty, pending an investigation by the department’s Office of Professional Standards. That investigation was characterized as “routine.” 

“We don’t anticipate any charges,” DalPorto said. “The force that was used by the officer appears to be entirely justified.”
