BLOOMING GROVE TOWNSHIP One Pennsylvania State Police trooper is dead and another is injured following a shooting at a barracks in Pike County.
State police have confirmed there was a shooting late Friday night at the Blooming Grove barracks.
Authorities confirm on trooper is dead and another was wounded.
Their names have not been released.
It happened along Route 402 in Blooming Grove Township.
Investigators said it happened Friday night as the two troopers were changing shifts. They were shot outside the barracks by a shooter or shooters.
Troopers say no one is in custody and a massive manhunt is under way, with police from Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey involved in the search.
Any updates on motive or shooter’s relation to victims?
Where’s Bill Ayers?
The police are exposed to criminality and that will always represent danger. However when they turn police stations into fortresses we’ll know we are in trouble as a nation, as well as the claim we are the land of the free. The role of police is protect and serve.
Fear is always used by politicians and government to grab power.

A Fountain Hill police officer has been suspended without pay because he was arrested last weekend on charges he hit his girlfriend, Mayor Stephen Repasch said.
Jeffrey Hudak, 40, of 1003 Crane St., North Catasauqua, was charged June 18 with simple assault and harassment. North Catasauqua officer Benjamin Tucker said in court documents that Hudak hit Nicole Eckrote above an eye about 8 p.m. while they were arguing in Hudak's home.
10:51 p.m. Paramedics are first called to the state police barracks for a shooting. "There are two victims at this time," a dispatcher said.
10:53 p.m. Dispatches report: "Code 17-G," the code for a shooting, "multiple victims."
11:13 p.m. Paramedics request helicopters to fly the shooting victims from the scene. Crews begin establishing "LZ [landing zone] for two helicopters" near intersection of Intersection 84 and Route 402 in Blooming Grove Township. "They are going to fly, they do have an 11 and 14 ETA [estimated time of arrival]."
11:21 p.m. Dispatches call for the landing zone to be established at Interstate 84 and Route 402 is rebroadcast.
11:23 p.m. Paramedics are told there is a seven and 18 minute wait for the helicopters.
11:26 p.m. Fire police setting up the landing zone at I-84 and Route 402 report: "We are under fire. We are moving the landing zone to the middle school."
Thank you, Ken, for the updates.
so with no info on the shooter(s) what are all these people searching for..over time?
From the scant info released, it appears there were 2 shooting scenes. Police were shot at for 45 minutes, first at the barracks, then at the extraction site where the air ambulance helicopters were brought in.
20 to 30 rounds fired, but no mention if some of that was return fire. Sounds like an organized attack, not a random driveby.
Why all the secrecy? If they want the public’s help, the public needs to know a little about what is happening.
I’ll say this again — and this is total speculation on my part — there is an alleged terrorist training camp located a mere 60 miles from the shooting. The place is called Islamberg.
Cops only seem to enforce the law when it is broken against one of their own.
Fourteen posts before the first thing that popped into my mind is displayed?
While I mostly agree with this sentiment, I think too, that you do an injustice when such things are discounted. Look at the Fort Hood shooter. He opened up on an army post. Granted, he probably knew that there would be no guns near his victims, yet he also didn't know how close the security detail was and who would respond to his attack or how fast they would be. Remember that the muzzies have been slaughtering both infidels and their armies since the 600's AD. The Crusades, all seven of them, didn't turn out too well for the Crusaders. Even though much of that can be tacked onto the Crusaders themselves, the mooselimb armies cannot be discounted.
As a resident of PA, albeit as far away as can be and still be in PA, I wonder why this story has fallen off the radar.
Talked to a PSP friend yesterday, local troop, and he said they don’t know any more than I do.
I go hunting and fishing near Islamberg. The compound is actually in the Town of Hancock. Many of the local who I have spoken to are very afraid of these people. I suspect that the feds/state keep a close eye on the place, but allow them to operate because that’s the best way to keep tabs on these people.
Here’s what the place looks like (zoom in on “bird’s eye”):
Link doesn’t work for me. Is it my computer, or the link?
