#AceNewsServices – UNITED STATES (Pennsylvania) – September 21 – The suspect in the deadly ambush at a state police barracks in a remote part of north-eastern Pennsylvania remained at large for a ninth day Sunday as police appeared to have narrowed their search, largely shutting down the area where he lived with his parents but leaving neighbours with few answers about what’s going on just outside their front doors.
With a helicopter flying overhead, law enforcement officers wearing bulletproof vests and armed with rifles continued their hunt for Eric Frein, 31, now on the FBI’s Most Wanted list.
On September 12, 2014, a gunman targeted the Pennsylvania State Police Blooming Grove Barracks in Pike County, Pennsylvania, ambushing Corporal Bryon Dickson and Trooper Alex Douglass.
Corporal Dickson, 38, was fatally shot and Trooper Douglass, 31, critically wounded. Days later, Freins vehicle was found partially submerged in a nearby pond and allegedly contained evidence linking him to the shootings.
State arrest warrants were issued after Frein was charged with homicide, homicide of a law enforcement officer, and attempted murder. F
Frein is also charged federally with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
He is considered armed and extremely dangerous.
