A New York State assemblyman is calling on Governor Andrew Cuomo to launch an independent investigation into allegations that the Putnam County district attorney has remained involved in a case from which he recused himself.

Police scoured areas of Putnam County, New York, Thursday, in search of a suspect wanted in a fatal shooting at a Long Island business. Putnam County Sheriff Donald Smith says officers from several law enforcement agencies continued their search for the Queens man in the Philipstown area in western Putnam County.

The Sheriff’s Office used a mass-calling alert system Thursday to notify area residents about the manhunt. Below is that call.
