Memorial Being Held For Fallen Officer Joseph Corr
New Hartford, NY (WIBX) – The public is invited to attend services being held today for fallen New Hartford Police Officer Joseph Corr.
Corr was shot and killed in the line of duty six years ago after responding to an armed robbery on Commercial Drive which led to a high speed car chase along Route 5.
The memorial service will take place at 6:00pm at St. John the Evangelist Church on Oxford Road in New Hartford. The candlelight vigil will follow at 8:15pm behind the Byrne Dairy in Kirkland, marking the spot where Corr was fatally shot.
