4 Dead, 3 State Troopers Injured After Shooting in Rural Pa.

News Dec 21, 2012

HOLLIDAYSBURG, Pennsylvania (AP) — A shooting along a rural U.S. road left four people dead, including the gunman, a prosecutor said Friday. Three state troopers were injured.

The shooting scene "extended over several miles" in Frankstown Township in Pennsylvania, Blair County District Attorney Rich Consiglio said.

Consiglio said the dead were three men and one woman. Identities of the victims and gunman weren't immediately released.

State police said one trooper was struck by gunfire but escaped serious injury because he was wearing a bulletproof vest.

Consiglio said a second trooper was hit by shattered glass and a third was in a crash involving the gunman.

Consiglio said the public was not at risk.
