US Army Soldier Charged With Shooting and Killing NY Cop

Trooper Joel Davis was shot and killed when he responded to the scene of a reported domestic incident at a home in the Jefferson County town of Theresa Sunday night. While approaching the residence, Trooper Davis was shot once and killed.

Officials say the alleged shooter was 32-year-old Justin Walters, an active duty Army infantryman stationed at Fort Drum.

Staff Sgt. Justin Walters, 32, allegedly killed his wife, Nichole Walters, 27, Sunday, July 9 at the couple's rural upstate property in NY, according to a report by The Associated Press. Her injuries were not life threatening. Michael allegedly killed his wife along with his lover Alisa Jackson and tried to portray the murder scene as a burglary.

A second woman was shot, in the upper torso, police said.

State police say at around 8 p.m. Sunday night, Davis responded to a domestic violence call in Jefferson County. He said Nichole met Justin Walters around the time she finished high school in the Syracuse area and was heading to business school.

Walters is a Fort Drum soldier, he serves in an infantry unit.

Deputy John Gleason not only worked with Davis, but was friends with him.

The couple lived just minutes from Fort Drum, a sprawling post that's home to about 15,000 soldiers who are among the most deployed in the US military. He's being held without bail. Upon graduation, he was assigned to the state police's Watertown barracks before receiving his current assignment at the post in the town of Philadelphia.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has ordered flags on state buildings flown at half-mast in honor of Trooper Joel Davis.

Three years ago, the Walters family had a boy, Heavy.com found out.

There's a number of pictures of her and Justin Walters on her Facebook page, showing them hugging and cuddling, like a typical loving couple.

Walters is a decorated soldier, according to Fort Drum's public affairs office.
