Police Vehicles Rammed, Shots Fired In Little Falls
What started as a traffic stop resulted in police vehicles being rammed and a State Police investigator discharging his weapon.
Police say the incident began around 3:45 Friday afternoon when investigators attempted to stop a 2002 grey Honda Odyssey on East Gansevoort Street at the intersection at Gansevoort Street and North Anne Street, but say the driver, Kyle Edick, 23, of Little Falls, accelerated his vehicle in reverse striking a state police vehicle and causing minor injury to one of the Investigators. Edick then accelerated the van forward at the second investigator, police said. It was at this time, the second investigator discharged two rounds at Edick’s van. Edick then fled the area, according to state police.
At approximately 7:55 p.m., the New York State Police with the assistance of the Little Falls Police Department and Dolgeville Police Department located Kyle Edick in Manheim, N.Y. and took him into custody without further incident. Edick was found to be suffering from a gunshot wound to the elbow and is currently being treated at a local hospital.
Charges are pending at this time. The investigation is continuing.
