Shooting in Cooperstown, Suspect Still on the Loose

Police are still looking for a man they say was involved in a shots-fired incident in Cooperstown.

It happened at the 7th Inning Stretch store on Main Street about 9:00am Monday morning.

Police say 62-year-old Barry Renert, a former employee, was dressed in all black and wearing a mask which partially covered his face, confronted the store's owner in the office area displaying a gun.

The store's owner then produced his own gun and fired at Renert, according to police.

No one was injured and Renert fled. Renert is described as a white male, 6-feet, two-inches tall, about 240 pounds with tattoos including a fully tattooed arm.

Police say he may be driving a 2012 black Chrysler 200 with Florida plates.

Back in September New York State Police arrested Renert, then of Richfield Springs, for criminal contempt in the second degree.

Police said Renert made unwanted personal contact with and telephone calls to the protected woman in violation of the terms of the order of protection.

Renert is considered armed and dangerous and anyone who sees him is urged to call Cooperstown Police at 547-1697.
