NY State Police honor the fallen, hand out awards

ALBANY, N.Y. — Three troopers who shot a man after he killed his baby with a shotgun are among those being honored at the New York State Police's 35th annual memorial and awards ceremony at the State Police Academy in Albany.

The Brummer Award, the agency's highest award for bravery, is being presented Thursday morning to Sgt. Thomas Haumann, Trooper Carlo Gennario, and Trooper Richard Snyder, all of Troop D in Sylvan Beach.

They shot 21-year-old Adam Theall last July after he killed his 3-month-old son. The Oneida County man is now serving 25 years to life in prison.

State troopers in western New York held their annual memorial service Wednesday in Batavia.
