2 Pa. State Troopers Gunned Down Saturday

Two state police troopers were shot and wounded Friday night in Fairchance, Fayette County, when they confronted a man investigators said was selling stolen property following several burglaries in the area.

According to WTAE, one trooper was flown to Morgantown Hospital. As troopers approached him, possibly while undercover, police say the suspect pulled a gun from a backpack and fired shots. "His prognosis is good", Ruggery said.

The incident happened at around 9 p.m. outside of the Shop 'n Save on West Church Street.

Witnesses said the troopers saw a man they believed had an outstanding warrant against him. A message left with the Fairchance Police Department wasn't immediately returned.

One trooper was treated for a hand wound and released.

Nobody else was harmed, Ruggery said.

When they recapture their wellbeing, the two troopers will be set on managerial obligation until the point when an examination is finished up by the Fayette County head prosecutor's office, Ruggery said. "Providing a safe environment for our employees and guests is our number one concern".
