This is some bad ****.


Person of interest being questioned. Manhunt still underway.

http://www.usatoday....oting/15574705/

A massive manhunt was underway Saturday after two Pennsylvania State troopers were ambushed outside a police barracks in Blooming Grove, Pa. during a late-night shift change, leaving one dead and another injured.

The Times-Tribune, WNEP and the Associated Press identified Jeffrey Hudak, 48, as the person being questioned. However, WBRE and WYOU reported that Hudak is not considered a suspect.

"No one is in custody or under arrest," Trooper Connie Devens, a spokeswoman for Troop R in Dunmore, Pa., told the AP. "Mr. Hudak is being questioned as a person of interest."

Hudak, who was located as police were searching for a suspect or suspects in the shooting, has not been charged with a crime, Devens told The Times-Tribune.

The troopers were shot at about 11 p.m. Friday at the barracks in the township of nearly 5,000 people, located about 35 miles east of Scranton. Authorities from across the region, including New York and New Jersey, descended on northeastern Pennsylvania to help locate the shooter or shooters. Nearby Lackawanna County dispatched its SWAT team, and helicopters were seen flying over the area.

"We can't say that the situation is completely in hand," State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan said at a 7 a.m. news conference. "This has been an emotional night for all of us."

Here's why I hate the media...well, one of many. They go out of their way to say Hudak was a person of interest yet he was not arrested nor is he even being detained. If you or someone you know were in the wrong place at the wrong time in the vicinity of a crime and police took you in for questioning, you just had your name smeared all over the news for doing NOTHING. Not saying this guy in particular is innocent, but this kinda crap happens all the time.

Prayers to the loved ones left behind by this heinous crime; may law enforcement apprehend the idiots whose brains be fed as slop to a famer's swine.

Did anyone see the BOLO on the suspect and his PA tag? How did DMV let that get through?
