A few more details about Troy police shooting, letter: Soares tried to get state AG to take on Ivy case, Saratoga Springs filling up for Travers

Lansingburgh police shooting
The two Troy police officers injured in the exchange of gunfire this weekend in Lansingburgh are continuing to recover -- Chad Klein, who was shot once, is expected to be released today, according to the Times Union and WNYT. Officials "familiar with details of the incident" tell the TU that Joshua Comitale was hit four times in the legs and will continue to stay in the hospital. On Monday TPD continued to survey the scene of the shooting and has so far declined to release the video it says it has of the incident. Two witnesses tell the Times Union they saw Thaddeus Faison fire first, watched the struggle by officers to subdue him, and then observed officers perform CPR on him. TPD removed items commemorating both the officers and Faison from the intersection near the scene on Monday, which upset people who had constructed the memorial for Faison.
