CANONSBURG, Pa. — The man who allegedly fatally shot a western Pennsylvania police officer and injured another Thursday has died, officials said.
The man, who is suspected of ambushing two Pennsylvania police officers responding to a domestic dispute, was found dead along with a woman.
Officials have not identified the man or woman.
Police say the man died of a self-inflicted injury after shooting at the Canonsburg police officers, killing seven-year veteran Scott Bashioum early Thursday. The name of the wounded officer, who is in stable condition after surgery at a Pittsburgh hospital, has not been released.
Canonsburg and state police say the incident began about 3:15 a.m.
Trooper Melinda Bondarenka tells reporters the officers were immediately met with gunfire when they arrived at the scene.
Police and SWAT teams have been seen near at least two homes in the borough about 20 miles southwest of Pittsburgh.
Nearby schools were delayed or canceled because of the heavy police presence.
The surviving officer was flown to a hospital in Pittsburgh, but his name, condition and nature of his wounds haven't been released.
