2 Pa. police troopers shot, suspect dead after confrontation outside store





Two Pennsylvania State Police troopers were injured and a suspect killed in a shooting outside a Fayette County business Friday night.

The shootings occurred outside the Fairchance Shop 'n Save store at 58 W. Church Street, between 8 and 9 p.m.

Witnesses said the troopers, possibly working undercover, saw a man they believed had an outstanding warrant against him. The troopers stopped him, the witnesses said, and he reached into his backpack, pulled out a gun and started shooting.

At least one of the troopers returned fire, killing the man, the witnesses said. The dead man was in his mid-20s, the witnesses said.



WPXI reports: One of the troopers was life-flighted from the scene to a hospital in Morgantown, West Virginia, officials said. The other trooper was taken to a hospital via ambulance. Both were stable and alert.

KDKA reports: Sources tell KDKA that one trooper was shot in the stomach and was in surgery at a hospital in Morgantown around 10:30 p.m. Sources say the other trooper was shot in the hand.



In Florida overnight, one police officer was killed and three wounded. The officers were responding to suspected drug activity and reports of a suicide attempt, police said Saturday.

One officer was killed and another gravely injured late Friday night in Kissimmee in central Florida just south of the theme park hub of Orlando. The other two officers were injured a couple of hours later in Jacksonville, one of them shot in both hands and the other in the stomach.
Three of four suspects in the Kissimmee shooting were arrested, and the shooter in Jacksonville was shot and killed when police returned fire.
