VIDEO: Troopers Ambushed Outside Pennsylvania State Police Barracks, 1 Dead, 1 Wounded

Two troopers were ambushed outside a state police barracks in Blooming Grove, Pa., during a late-night shift change Friday, leaving one dead and another injured. The shooter is believed to be at large.

One trooper was leaving the barracks in Blooming Grove, Pike County, and another was arriving when shots were fired at 10:50 p.m., State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan told the Associated Press. He identified the dead trooper as Cpl. Bryon Dickson and said Trooper Alex Douglass was hospitalized in critical but stable condition.

Law enforcement officials from across the region, including New York and New Jersey, descended on the Pocono Mountains to help with the search on foot and by helicopter. The Blooming Grove barracks is in a wooded area, surrounded by state game lands.

A person of interest has been interviewed. A $20,000 reward is being offered for information on the location of the suspect.

Hanging is to good for them. A slow and painful electrocution. I hope the catch the cowardly thug that did this!

My prayers are with Cpl Dickson's wife and two young sons. My prayers are also with Trooper Douglass as he fights to recover from his injuries. I hope the exterior barracks had surveillance camera coverage. An attack on one is an attack on all.

Is Joe Blow Lenny's new name? I wonder why it is that people who hate police are so uneducated and incapable of forming a literate sentence? It might be drugs...or they are just morons.
