Default PA manhunt for shooter

An all-night manhunt turned up no sign of a "survivalist" sharpshooter suspected of killing one Pennsylvania state trooper and wounding another in an ambush on their barracks. Eric Matthew Frein, 31, is believed to be armed with two high-powered rifles, and his father told investigators that he "doesn't miss." An arrest warrant was issued for Frein after police found his car — and shell casings that matched the murder weapon — not far from the Blooming Grove barracks, where Cpl. Bryon Dickson, 38, was gunned down walking to his car and Trooper Alex Douglass was critically wounded while coming to his aid on Friday night.

Authorities described Frein — who lived in Canadensis, 20 miles away, with his parents — as a trained marksman who has written about his desire to kill police and commit mass murder. "He’s expressed anti-government leanings in the past, especially toward law enforcement, and he has survivalist training," State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan said at a Tuesday press conference where Frein was identified as the suspect. Schools in the area were closed Wednesday because Frein was still at large.

Friends of Frein told NBC News that he was a military re-enacter who has assumed the role of a German soldier from World War II in the past. "Definitely, he could be very critical of the government. He voiced his opinions, had strong feelings — but nothing like, 'I'm going to go out and kill people and commit mass murder,'" said Jeremiah Hornbaker, who worked with Frein on several film productions.

Sounds like this guy won't be surrendering peacefully...

I am afraid as this country unravels there will be more of this type of assaults. Our uniform LEO's are just open targets for them.

Sounds like he wants to be like some WW2 German sniper on the Eastern Front..too bad he couldn't direct his anger toward ISIS instead. Like his old man said "he never misses".

The law says they are closing in on him..but tens of thousand of acres in the Pocono Mts. to hide. Some speculate that he might already be dead..took his own life or he might be another Rambo living off the land.

Keep htis in mind fellas.
No matter what the reason for his much quoted but never explained "grudge" is he will always been a lunatic in the media.

Also any critical citizen can ( and will if need be) accused of "anti-gov't statements.
They would say as much about all of us.
