Three troopers were hurt during a shooting incident in Blair County that left four people dead, said District Attorney Rich Consiglio.
The crime scene extends along at least six miles of Juniata Valley Road, which runs along the Juniata River, said Steve Michelone of Blair County Emergency Management Agency.
Investigators believe the shooter might have been mobile as he drove along, shooting his vctims for unknown reasons, Michelone said.
One of the dead was the shooter who got into a confrontation with police on the road, near Geeseytown, Frankstown Township, Consiglio said.
None of the troopers‘ injuries are life-threatening, the DA said.
One was struck by glass after a bullet shattered the window of his police vehicle during the shootout, Consiglio said.
Trooper Adam Reed told the Associated Press that one trooper was shot but saved by his bulletproof vest.
Blair County Emergency Management‘s Facebook page indicates police had “neutralized” the shooter.
No further information is available.
A media briefing is expected this afternoon from state police spokesmen at the Geeseytown Fire Hall near Hollidaysburg.
