More than 1,000 attend funeral for fallen Johnson City police officer

Hundreds of state troopers, deputies and other police attended the funeral of a Binghamton-area police officer Friday.

Our media partner WENY-TV reports that at least a thousand people turned out for the burial ceremony for Officer David Smith.

The Johnson City police officer was fatally shot Monday morning after responding to a disturbance call.

Authorities say the 18-year-veteran was shot with his own weapon by a 43-
year-old medical office technician just after the officer had arrived at the scene.

Another officer then fatally shot Clark.

Police still don’t know the motive in the shooting.

The 43-year-old Smith is survived by his wife, Christian and his son, Andrew.
