WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - Law enforcement officials armed with AR-15-type rifles entered the Potsdam Walmart to nab a man who had fled police and ran into the store. The sheriff says police need to make split-second decisions about guns for the public’s safety:

Michael Joseph Bolia Jr.
Just what would be considered inappropriate and how far back will they go?
Repairs needed to reopen Watertown’s Flynn pool will cost $3 million to $4 million. Is it worth it? City council members are divided and so are you:
