An EMT Volunteer from the Cape Vincent Fire Department was shot and killed overnight, while responding to a medical emergency.

State Police said Mark Davis, 25, Cape Vincent, arrived at an apartment at 114 Esseltyne Street in Cape Vincent around 11:30 Friday Night. Immediately, Davis started treating the person who made the emergency call, Christopher Burke, 25, Sherrill, NY.

After a while, Burke grew agitated and started talking about guns, police said. Davis, as well as another EMT Volunteer got nervous and decided to leave the apartment. Burke apparently ran into another room and grabbed a high-power rifle and fired off two shots at Davis, then tried fleeing the scene. The other EMT Volunteer, who was with Davis, tackled Burke to the ground until police arrived.

Burke was arrested and charged with 2nd Degree Murder and Criminal Possession of a Weapon (4th).

Davis was rushed to Samaritan Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.
