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.
Officials tell WPVI that a jeep was found in swampy area near the barracks in Blooming Grove.
Inside that jeep was evidence that connects the suspect to the ambush.
WPVI reports that state police say the Jeep is registered to the suspects father, but is owned by the suspect who lives and works in Delaware.
Suspect named. Eric Frein
White guy, survivalist, probably an anarchist/extreme libertarian or a white separatist. A liberal fantasy coming true.
Yup. They’re gunna love this.
What a dumba$$!!!
SS card, PA game commission range permit, spent brass, dead officer.
Mondays vote in Harrisburg.
Wonder if this was an AR or not?
Tin foil hat off.
“Shooter” with Mark Walburg
Way too neat and tidy unless this guy is a walking nutjob
The guy is a walking nutjob.
Trust me, the state troopers and local law enforcement are 100% uninterested in wrapping up the case quickly by targeting the wrong guy, and 100% dedicated to getting the guy who really did this. He just did it badly and drove his getaway jeep into a retention pool while he was escaping through the woods.
Lucky for the cops to find solid evidence already, not so lucky for us who live nearby and know this guy is armed, scared, had his escape plan ruined and is just fine with murdering innocent people.
It has been several days and not a sighting on the guy?
The way one article described the vehicle, they implied it was ditched before the shooting.
Plus, I have never met anyone that holds onto berden primed brass, it is as worthless as spent 22lr. (he was shooting Aussie surplus 7.62 ammo)
A large percentage of the county is thick woods and state gamelands sprinkled with old, unused summer cottages, hunting cabins and sheds... King Kong could hide in the forest up here for days and not be found.
true or bs...who knows.
isnt that where The Unabomber hid for a time?
“Police are looking for someone who is an avid hunter or may have formal firearms training with a rifle”.
In PA,. that’s 1/2 of the population.
When does hunting season start?
WOODCHUCKS (GROUNDHOGS): No closed season, ...except on Sundays and during the regular firearms deer seasons. No limit.
PORCUPINES: Sept. 1-March 31, except during overlap with the regular firearms deer season. Daily limit of three,
Who is this guy?
Good question. We’re not being told a lot of the story.
Not clear what are the details of his grudge (I mean besides having gone haywire).
