Police: Corrections officer was on disability before shooting spree
Police are now saying that Richard Kraemer was on disability before he allegedly went on a shooting spree over the weekend down a Cortlandt street.
Police say Kraemer was walking down a Cortlandt street, firing randomly on Saturday. One of the rounds struck a neighbor who was sitting in his house in the leg.
Investigators say that Kraemer has been on disability for six months and could have suffered a mental breakdown.
Witnesses to the spree say that he seemed disorientated and confused when police arrived and subdued him.
Kraemer remains in the Dutchess County jail on $750,000 bail. He is charged with multiple felonies including assault.
