ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - New York state senators are honoring an environmental conservation officer who was shot last fall, along with the partner who helped save him.

Officer James Davey and Lt. Liza-J Bobseine will be recognized Monday with the state Senate’s Liberty Medal.

Davey and Bobseine were investigating reports last November of illegal hunting after dark in Columbia County. Davey was walking in a field about 40 miles (64 kilometers) southeast of Albany when he was hit in the pelvis by a bullet. Bobseine quickly tended to his wound in the field.

The shooter pleaded guilty to assault earlier this year.
