MILFORD, Pa. (AP) - The survivalist who shot and killed a Pennsylvania State Police trooper and injured another in an ambush at their barracks will now fight for his own life following his conviction on capital murder charges.
"On behalf of the Pennsylvania State Police, I would like to thank the Pike County District Attorney, members of the jury, and the court for ensuring that a cowardly killer faces justice. We also extend our gratitude to the countless local, state, and federal authorities who assisted in the capture and conviction of the perpetrator. The unprovoked ambush was an attack on not only law enforcement, but all Pennsylvanians. Our thoughts remain with the family of Corporal Dickson, Trooper Douglass, and all those whose lives have been forever changed by the events of September 12, 2014. The outpouring of support from across the nation has been invaluable during this time and is appreciated by all who serve with the Pennsylvania State Police."
