US shooting leaves 4 dead, 3 injured

State police say troopers have fatally shot a man who fled in a pickup truck after killing three people in rural central Pennsylvania.

Spokeswoman Maria Finn says the suspect fired at troopers responding to Friday morning's shootings in Frankstown Township, about 70 miles west of Harrisburg.

The fleeing gunman then crashed head-on into a trooper's car and got out of his truck and shot again at police, who returned fire and killed him.

Blair County District Attorney Richard Consiglio says the gunman killed two men and one woman.

Finn says one trooper was shot in his bulletproof vest and wrist. A second was struck by broken glass, and a third trooper was hurt in the car crash.

All are expected to recover.

The victims' names haven't been released.

The public is not at risk, Consiglio said. Nearby schools weren't placed on lockdown, township supervisor Mark Schroyer said.
