Police Say They’re Closing in on Trooper Shooter

Found gun, stash of ammo in the woods on Sunday.

Police say they’re confident they’re closing in on the man who shot two troopers earlier this month, killing one, as they continue to comb their Pennsylvania woods for him.

ABC News says officials discovered on Sunday gun and some ammo they believe belong to Eric Frein, the suspect in the case.

Officials Sunday found a Kalashnikov-style rifle and two AK-47 clips in the dense Pennsylvania forest near the barracks where Eric Frein allegedly killed Cpl. Bryon Dickson, 38, and critically wounded Trooper Alex Douglass.

“We are pushing him hard, he is no longer safe and I am confident that he will be apprehended,” State Police Lt. Col. George Bivens said in a news conference Sunday. “Both dogs and human trackers are getting indications that we are on the right trail.”

The search is covering several miles of the boarder of Pike and Monroe counties, where Frein grew up.
