Newark Police Chief David Christler reflected on the crime Tuesday, noting that the defendants accused Walrad of selling marijuana from the Silver Hill Road home.
They went there that morning to rob him, Christler said. That was the allegations made by the defendants. However, we never had proof that he was selling drugs out of the house.
Christler praised the investigation team led by Newark Inv.
The village of Newark is generally a safe community, Christler said. He added that the shooting was the first shooting in six years in Newark.

Newark Village Board appoints David Christler as interim police chief
Former Deputy State Police Superintendent to apply for permanent position, but his attempts may be thwarted by officers already on the force
David Christler
In a move that came as a shock to many in the community, including members of the police department, the Village Newark Board voted, at a special meeting held on Thursday night, to appoint Newark native David L. Christler as Interim Police Chief for the Newark Police Department.
Christler, who retired from the New York State Police at the end of 2006 with the rank of Colonel-Deputy Superintendent of the New York State Police, began his career as a uniformed trooper in 1974.
According to Blandino, the pay package being offered to Christler is to be negotiated.
"Pay is not an issue with him (Christler) said the Village Mayor.
Christler has been busy since his retirement working on the design and construction of the Federal Drug Enforcement building in Plattsburg.
The former State Deputy Superintendent is 59 years old and said he was eager to return to law enforcement and public safety and ready to serve his life-long hometown Newark . David and his wife Diane have been married for 32 years. The couple who reside on Pine Ridge Drive in Newark have two grown daughters - Amy who resides in San Diego and Lauren who resides in Newark .
Christler said he has every intention of taking the open civil service police chief's test in May and applying for the permanent position as Newark Police Chief. He added that after 32 years on the road, Diane is very supportive of his decision to finally settle down.
There could be a roadblock to Christler's and the board's wishes for him to become chief. Under Civil Service law, current members of the Newark Police department may request a police chief ‘promotional test.' That test too would probably be given in May. Under civil service law, those taking the promotional test are given preference for the job over those taking the ‘competitive' test. If three, or more current Newark officers take and pass the test, regardless of how Christler scores on his test, he will not be eligible for list for the Newark Police Chief permanent position.
Wayne County Interim Personnel Director Jennifer Mortier, said she has met with Mayor Blandino who also traveled to Albany for a correct understanding of the civil service laws as they apply to testing for the police chief position.
Mortier said the Mayor was hopeful that once Christler is in the interim position, the current Newark Police Officers will accept him and possibly back off from taking the ‘promotional' test.
Mortier said that if only two of the current handful of officers who have expressed interest in setting up and taking the promotional test pass the test, Christler could be on the final list of three qualifying civil service candidates the Board has to select from.

Chief David Christler, Newark Police Dept. said, "I think sometimes people that do this think that they can steal the equipment and it's not going to impact anybody because the insurance company will reimburse the victim and that's not always the case."
Christler says his department has not made an arrest in this case, but he says there are some leads.
