Police search for armed Cooperstown shooting suspect

COOPERSTOWN – New York State Police along with the Village of Cooperstown Police and The Otsego County Sheriff’s Department, engaged in a manhunt Monday morning as a result of gunfire at a Main Street Cooperstown retailer.



Police searched throughout the day Monday as the Village's Main Street businesses as well as the Bassett Medical Center engaged in a “lock down” status for nearly four hours as police personnel cleared the vicinity for the suspect who remains at large.

At this time, police are still searching for 62-year-old Barry Renert, who entered the Seventh Inning Stretch memorabilia shop located at 137 Main St. in the village, a short distance away from the Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame, which will celebrate its seventy-fifth year of operation in 2014.
