News conference schedule for Wednesday
UTICA, N.Y. -- Oneida County Sheriff Rob Maciol will hold a news conference Wednesday to update the status of the department's investigation into the murder of Deputy Kurt Wyman.
Wyman was shot and killed during a standoff in Knoxboro last Tuesday. Investigators say Wyman was shot by 40-year-old Christian Patterson, who had barricaded himself in his garage with a shotgun following a domestic dispute. Deputies returned fire hitting Patterson multiple times. He remains at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Utica and will be arraigned on a charge of first degree murder once he's conscious and lucid.
No other details have been released regarding what happened in the moments before the shooting. Wednesday's news conference is scheduled for 10 a.m. Be sure to tune to YNN, we will carry that news conference in its entirety.
