BLAIR COUNTY, Pa. (KDKA) Emergency officials are on the scene of a deadly shooting in Frankstown Township, in Blair County.
Right now, sources tell KDKA-TV that four people are dead, and three Pennsylvania State Troopers were also hurt, but are expected to be okay.
Sources say at least part of the shooting took place at the Juniata Valley Gospel Church.
Troopers responded to a 9-1-1 shots fired call about 9 a.m. Additional 9-1-1 calls reported an armed man shooting at additional locations.
According to sources, two troopers were fired at by the driver of a pickup truck on Juniata Valley Road and a third officer was injured in a head-on crash with the pickup.
Sources say the suspect was Jeffrey Lee Michael of Hollidaysburg, Pa.
Michael exited the truck and immediately shot at troopers. Troopers returned fire, killing Michael.
One trooper was hit by two bullets, one in the chest area, which hit his body armor. A second bullet hit the trooper in the wrist. A second trooper was injured from shattered glass, and shrapnel to the face from the gunfire. A third trooper was injured in the motor vehicle crash.
No word on the three people Michaels allegedly killed before firing at troopers.
If you see posts of interest to Pennsylvanians, please ping me.
ABC is now reporting that it happened over several miles of rural road.
Just pinged you on the first thread about this:
“PA again! Yesterday in Beaver, 3 black CHILDREN shot and murdered a young white woman for telling them to get a job. And today, this. What the hell is going on in PA???”
Here we go again. It’s amazing how these things happen one after another. I’m putting on my tin-foil, sometimes I wonder.
“Sources say the suspect was on a rural road in the Altoona Hollidaysburg area shooting at random.”
No rhyme or reason to these things anymore.
No, the get a job killing happened a while ago[weeks?], its just that The Blaze or some other outfit carried the story or it was put on FR, and the date wasn’t looked out.
Thanks for the ping to the earlier thread on this:

You’re right, this is getting way out of hand.
The gun grabbers have spent decades setting up gun free zones and anti-gun states across the country to use as straw men for a problem that doesn’t exist in those states that respect the right of the people to defend themselves.
It will never come out into the light during our lifetimes, but I can guarantee that at some point it will be learned that forces much higher up the chain than those of us down here in the trenches made the decision to use patsies in these gun-free bastions of supposed freedom and liberty to forward an agenda against the rest of us.
It only requires a tireless minority to inflict great harm against those of us who are willing to be self-sustaining and personally responsible for our well-being and that of our brethren.
It’s a mathematical fact that nothing is random. It may be part of a very long, protracted series of events, but it is repeatable and likely part of a plan that has been in motion for a very long time.
The Roman empire fell under similar circumstances. It’s only a matter of time before America falls to the same fate.
Okay, thanks. Still, it’s getting way too close to home.
This is already being spun.
It's just that you're hearing about them more now.
It took someone with a firearm to stop him.
Probably a domestic issue....
I think this is 0bama’s Fast and Furious II.
He has not been prosecuting gun violations for 4 years and he is getting the result he has hoped for.
So it is apparent that the state-run media is targeting the 2nd Amendment for His Majestys second four-year reign.
Just as they shoved the daily body count of the Iraq war in our faces every night on the evening news during Bushs presidency (and went oddly silent on the body count after they put a communist in the White House even though 2/3s of all deaths and casualties occurred under Obammie the Commies first four year reign) so we are going to have every single shooting in the country reported as breaking news and shoved in our faces every day until we all say, ENOUGH, TAKE OUR DAMN GUNS JUST LEAVE US ALONE.
300,000,000 firearms in the US today hurt no one.
They only glorify the bad news to push their statist, communist agenda.
A thread on a couple of PA school incidents.
Now THAT is a new wrinkle, randomly shooting even while driving.
