The flag outside the white clapboard town hall was at half mast, and condolences were pouring in to the families and friends of McKay, 48, a veteran police officer, who was shot four times by Liko Kenney, 24, after a traffic stop Friday evening, police and prosecutors said yesterday. Kenney then ran over the officer and was shot by witness Gregory W. Floyd when Kenney refused to drop his gun, according to authorities.
