Dolgeville Man with Knife and Sword Tasted and Shot
An investigation is still ongoing after New York State Police say a soldier shot dead a man on Friday afternoon in Dolgeville.
At approximately 1:04 p.m. on Christmas Eve, New York State Police and a member of the Dolgeville Police Department were called to 203 Mers Way in Dolgeville with a report of a stabbing related to a family dispute.
The NYSP said it determined that Carson Dobson, 24, broke into the house and stabbed the victim several times before leaving the scene.
NYSP and Dolgeville Police found Dobson a short distance from where the alleged stabbing took place. It is said that he was armed with “a knife and a sword”.
According to the NYSP,
“Dobson refused to drop the guns despite repeated orders from law enforcement and was tased. Although he was tased, the suspect continued on to the police and threatened them.
A member of the state police fired his division-issued weapon, hitting the suspect. “
The suspect, Dobson, died at the scene.
Police said the stabbed victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment of the injuries sustained. This person, according to the police, is expected to be well.
As is customary in cases of shootings involving officers, the attorney general’s office has been notified. This office has responded and is currently investigating the incident.
Investigations into the stabbing and shooting are continuing.
Dolgeville is a small community located in Herkimer and Fulton counties. The victim is not identified.
