State police: No additional wounds found in N.Y. trooper

The Associated Press

A state police spokeswoman said a published report of additional wounds being found in a shot trooper is incorrect.

The report in Sunday's editions of The Buffalo News said more wounds were found Friday during exploratory surgery on Donald Baker Jr., who shot August 31 during the search for fugitive Ralph "Bucky" Phillips.

But state police spokeswoman Rebecca Gibbons said the report, based on an interview with her, is wrong. She said Friday's surgery was done on Baker's existing wounds.

She said, "These are not new wounds. There was no extra gunshot in him, nothing like that."
