Friendly fire now blamed for trooper's death

The state trooper killed Wednesday in the search for 23-year-old fugitive Travis Trim may have died from friendly fire, according to a state police spokesman.
Trim holed up inside a house in the Catskill Mountains a day after allegedly shooting and wounding another trooper.
David Brinkerhoff was in the middle of what authorities now describe as a chaotic fire fight outside the house and a bullet from a colleague's gun may be responsible for the trooper's death.

After being convicted in 2005 of misdemeanor charges for petit larceny, Trim violated his probation by allegedly drinking and using drugs.
