Four dead, including gunman, in Pennsylvania shooting
Three state troopers were also injured in the incident which left three men and one woman dead.

A SHOOTING ALONG a rural road in central Pennsylvania has left four people dead, including the gunman, a prosecutor said. Three state troopers were also injured in the incident.

Blair County District Attorney Rich Consiglio says the shooting scene this morning “extended over several miles” in Frankstown Township, about 70 miles west of Harrisburg.

Consiglio says the dead were three men and one woman.

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

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

He says the public isn’t at risk. Township supervisor Mark Schroyer says nearby schools were not placed on lockdown.

The identities of the victims and gunman were not immediately released.
