Albany Police investigate the scene in the Empire State Plaza concourse where a New York State trooper was reportedly stabbed in the neck on Sunday, March 3, 2013. Police closed the concourse and searched the area for the suspect.
The stabbing happened inside the Empire State Plaza, an underground concourse that links the various buildings in the state Capitol. The concourse is open to the public 24 hours a day. 

Shortly before 5 p.m., according to a report in the Albany Times Union, police massed near an entrance to the plaza, which had been closed off. Police officers could be seen looking underneath cars parked on a nearby street as well as inside bushes along the roadway. 

Gov. Cuomo was not at the Capitol at the time; he was scheduled to be in the New York City area on Sunday. The governor visited the wounded trooper in the hospital Sunday night, a source said.
