Word came in the evening of Memorial Day of a body found on Woodin Road in Halfmoon but the State Police weren’t saying much. Finally, late Tuesday, SP-Clifton Park released a statement that Darryl Bell, 64, died from an accidental gunshot wound.

The investigation determined Bell was trying to get off his ATV with a loaded shotgun, when the weapon discharged, causing his fatal injuries.

The investigation included the use of NYSP Forensic Identifications Unit, witness interviews and the report of the NYSP Pathologist.
