Pa. State Police identify trooper killed in ambush
BLOOMING GROVE, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania State Police have identified the two troopers who were ambushed outside a state police barracks in northeastern Pennsylvania during a late-night shift change, leaving one dead and another injured.
State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan says that Cpl. Bryon Dickson of Dunmore was killed and Trooper Alex Douglass was wounded when shots were fired Friday night outside the Blooming Grove barracks. The station is in a wooded area surrounded by state game lands.
The shooting sparked a manhunt involving law enforcement officials from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York.
No arrests have been made. State police earlier Saturday identified a man they called a “person of interest” but said he is not a suspect.
