Search On For Person Who Killed Pennsylvania Trooper
BLOOMING GROVE, Pa. (AP) — Law enforcement officials from three states are searching a wooded area of northeastern Pennsylvania for the person who shot two state troopers last night. One trooper was killed and the other wounded.
State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan says the shooting occurred during a shift change Friday night at the Blooming Grove Barracks east of Scranton. He says one trooper was leaving the barracks and another was arriving when shots were fired.
The troopers' names haven't been released. Noonan says the injured trooper was taken to Geisinger Medical Center in Scranton, where he is in stable condition.
Noonan says the attack seemed to be directed at state police.
He says authorities don't have a description of the shooter or shooters but says they are following several leads.
