On Aug. 27, 2019, at approximately 7:40 a.m., Trooper Ryan Cooley was dispatched by Oswego County 911 to 3532 State Route 49 to respond to a report of a possible stolen vehicle in progress and to meet with the complainant who would be standing by in the area.

At approximately 8:05 a.m., Cooley located complainant Melissa Ehegartner standing on the side of the road. As Cooley was interviewing Ehegartner, the suspect drove by the state police patrol car in Ehegartner’ s vehicle and pulled into the driveway at 3532 Route 49. Cooley then pulled into the driveway right behind the vehicle and approached the driver, later identified as 25-year-old Robert S. Teeter of 3532 Route 49.

Following an interview with Teeter, Cooley attempted to place him in custody when he physically pulled away and swung his arm in an attempt to hit Cooley in the head. Teeter was able to get away and ran into the house.

A short time later, several troopers and Oswego County deputies arrived on scene to assist in locating Teeter, who was subsequently located hiding in a second-story bedroom. He then pointed a Bear River BB pistol (model B1588) at Trooper Nathan Horner. Horner discharged his division-issued firearm, striking Teeter several times. Teeter was transported to SUNY Upstate Medical University and is currently listed in serious condition.

Criminal charges against Teeter are pending.
