State Trooper Shot; Standoff Underway

UPDATE: One trooper was shot. All three troopers managed to get out of the home and call for backup. The injured trooper was flown to a hospital. State police say he appears to be alright. That alleged gunman has been barricaded inside the home for more than 10 hours.

NELSON TOWNSHIP, Pa. — A Pennsylvania State Trooper was wounded by gunfire at a home in Tioga County Tuesday afternoon.

The trooper was conducting a welfare check on Barney Hill Road in Nelson Township, near Elkland, around 12:30 p.m. when the person in the home opened fire at the members of the patrol, according to state police.

One trooper was hit and was flown to a hospital. Troopers said he was conscious and alert before going into surgery.

Another trooper at the scene is being treated for a possible broken leg, sustained while seeking cover from the gunfire.

The gunman remains barricaded inside the home.

    I hope they turn this degenerate into Swiss cheese and have to pick his pieces up with a shovel for shooting this Trooper for merely going to check on his welfare. This piece of trash disgust me. I really wish they would bring back public hangings so we can watch scum like this die.
