Albany Police Officer Chris Kitto appeared in court on Wednesday following an incident earlier this month in Utica.

Kitto, who was off-duty at the time, is accused of shooting and killing a man who tried to rob him.

Police say Kitto went to downtown Utica to meet up with a prostitute and that’s when the altercation happened.

Kitto was charged with soliciting a prostitute, which he has pleaded not guilty to.

He is not being charged with murder because the shooting was deemed an act of self-defense.
