State trooper shot, wounded responding to domestic dispute

New York State Police

DEPOSIT, N.Y. (AP) — A New York state trooper was shot in the arm while responding to a reported domestic dispute near the Pennsylvania border, police said Thursday.

Trooper Ryan Thorp was shot shortly after 9 p.m. Wednesday in the Delaware County town of Deposit. The three-year veteran of the force underwent surgery overnight at a local hospital and was in stable condition, state police said in a news release.

Scott A. Mawhiney, 44, was arraigned Thursday on a first-degree attempted murder charge and was jailed without bail, according to police.

It could not immediately be determined if Mawhiney had a lawyer.

It was the second time this month that a trooper was shot in the largely rural area east of Binghamton. A trooper was hospitalized after being shot near her hip on the night of June 9 while working with sheriff’s deputies checking on the welfare of a person in Colesville.
