ALBANY, N.Y.— The acting head of the New York State Police said Friday that a state trooper who died in a shootout with a fugitive was killed by another trooper's bullet.

A bullet from a State Police weapon was recovered during the autopsy on the body of Trooper David Brinkerhoff, according to Preston Felton, acting State Police superintendent.

Felton also revealed during a news conference that a bullet from the fugitive, Travis Trim, struck Brinkerhoff in the chest, but the trooper's body armor deflected it.
