Greece, N.Y.- Funeral services were held Thursday for a local man who was shot and killed in a motel room in Old Forge, Herkimer County last weekend.
Family, friends, and law enforcement gathered at St. John the Evangelist Church on West Ridge Road to remember 37-year-old Matthew Leach.
Police say he was shot by his father, Michael Leach, a 59-year-old retired Rochester Police Captain and currently a part-time officer with the Perry Police Department in Wyoming County.
New York State Police say Michael Leach mistook his son for an intruder in the hotel room they were both sharing.
Leach is remembered as a family man who married his wife about two years ago and spent lots of time with his close friends in the Punishers Motorcycle Club. It was a semi-annual trip with that club that had Leach and his father in Old Forge this past weekend.
