Police officials in Canandensis, Pennsylvania are currently on a manhunt for 31-year-old suspect Eric Frein after the killing of a state trooper.
Local government officials have stated that police have been surrounding a home where Frein is believed to be hiding. According to CNN:
The home, which was allegedly broken into, is not far from Frein’s family home in Canadensis, in the Poconos Mountains. But a police spokesman involved in the case could not confirm to CNN that Frein had been surrounded.
A government official said that police exchanged gunfire with an individual in the area that is believed to be Eric Frein. In the time being, statewide officials have asked all Monroe Country residents to stay inside their homes during the police activity. People were asked to stay away from windows and to not travel towards that area.
Eric Frein is currently being pursued after allegedly killing Corporal Byron Dickson in an ambush outside of the Pennsylvania State Police barracks in Blooming Grove on September 12. Frein is also suspected of wounding another police officer. He has now been placed on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list and there is a $100,000 reward for anyone who can provide information that will lead his arrest.
