Trooper Kubasiak was shot and killed by a mentally disturbed person who had barricaded himself in his home. Trooper Kubasiak, who knew the suspect personally, and his canine partner responded to the scene. While attempting to talk to the man in the kitchen the suspect suddenly fired at Trooper Kubasiak before he even had a chance to defend himself or order his dog to attack. The suspect was later arrested after being shot by other officers.

The suspect was convicted of murder and sentenced to 35 years to life. He will be eligible for parole in 2025.

Trooper Kubasiak had been with the agency for nine years. He was survived by his wife and two sons, who both became New York State troopers.

Went to school with Tpr. Kubasiaks sons. I didn't know Gary, but his sons were second to none. Always helpful and there when you needed a helping hand, as I hear Gary was the same. Now that his sons have followed in his footsteps, as I have also entered the law enforcement career, we can only hope to be the man that Gary was. RIP brother, you will not be forgotten.
