Police Kill Armed Suspect In Pembroke

04.12.18 | Bob Price

The suspect of a Wednesday night "shots fired" report in the town of Pembroke is now dead.

Batavia Police and the Genesee County Sheriff's Office responded to the report at Log Cabin Restaurant on Gilmore Road around 11 p.m. on Wednesday.

Upon arrival, police say the suspect was not cooperating and then raised his gun at police, which caused law enforcement to shoot and kill the suspect, according to investigators.

The Batavian reports Genesee County Undersheriff Gregory Walker as saying, "Officers were responding to the scene (for a report of shots fired) and when they got here they found the suspect in the parking lot," Walker said. "The officers yelled commands to him when they yelled the commands to him he turned towards one of our officers and pointed the gun at our officer. Our officer did take the shot and the suspect was killed."

Police say this is the first officer-involved shooting in Genesee County in decades.
