New Hampshire Police Officer Killed

Franconia, New Hampshire - May 12, 2007

The town of Franconia, New Hampshire is in shock after a police officer was shot and killed in a bizarre altercation that began with a traffic stop late Friday. The alleged shooter, a cousin of ski champion Bode Miller, was then killed by a passerby who grabbed the officer's gun.

Authorities say 24-year-old Liko Kenney shot Franconia Police Corporal Bruce McKay four times, then ran over him with his car after he was pulled over by the officer.

Police then say a witness to the shooting, Gregory Floyd, picked up the fallen officers gun and fatally shot Kenney. New Hampshire's Attorney General said that Floyd will not face any charges and that the shooting appeared to be justified.

Police say there was a history of bad blood between Mckay and Kenney. Corporal McKay was a 12-year veteran of the Franconia Police Department.
