Trooper Lawrence Gleason was shot and killed when he responded to a domestic disturbance call in Crown Point, New York.

He was talking to the female complainant at approximately 0900 hours when the male suspect arrived at the residence. The male then fired three shots into the home with a rifle, fatally wounding Trooper Gleason. The fatal round struck Trooper Gleason in the back, penetrating his vest. The suspect then entered the home, murdered his girlfriend, and then committed suicide.

Trooper Gleason had been employed with the New York State Police for one year, and is survived by his fiancée, parents, and sisters.

Trooper Lawrence P. Gleason, thank you for being a New York State Trooper, and for being a caring human being. I did not know you personally, but I did know your sister who I had the pleasure of working with on the Troop D construction project in 2010. Your sister told me several stories about you, and I have read every single Reflection written about you. I'm including Larry and his family in my prayers tonight along with Trooper Joel R. Davis who was murdered last night, and NYC Police Officer M. Familia who was murdered last week.
