Standoff in Residential Home in New City Leaves Man Dead

57 year old Vincent Cordaro was found dead early Sunday Morning inside a New City home after an evening long exchange with Police. Earlier in the night, the armed man reportedly had a confrontation with a relative who tried to wrestle the gun from him with other family members also in the home. They managed to escape while the tense situation carried on. Police closed off New Hempstead Road and Phillips Hill Road where up to 20 officers and SWAT responded. The man threatened officers and shots were fired from within the house and one bullet hitting a nearby home but no additional injuries were reported. It is unknown whether the death was self-inflicted or otherwise. Roads remain closed and a staging area for press was established at the Rockland County Office complex at 11 New Hempstead Road in New City.
