Authorities Probe Reported Confrontation Between Elizabethtown Youth And Off Duty Officer

Early last month, State Police in Essex County responded to a call of a supposed gunfight between an off-duty Cohoes police officer and a Black youth in Elizabethtown. 46 year old Sean McKown initally said a black youth had displayed a gun and that prompted him to fire after which he ditched his department issued pistol. Authorities say he later admitted the story wasn’t true. No charges have been filed in connection with the incident.
