(BLOOMING GROVE, Penn.) — Law enforcement agencies from three states are searching for the gunman or gunmen who ambushed two state troopers outside a barracks in a rural area of northeastern Pennsylvania, killing one and wounding the other.

The shooting happened outside the State Police Barracks in Blooming Grove, about 35 miles east of Scranton, just before 11 p.m. Friday, State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan told ABC News.

The shooting happened during a shift change at the barracks, said Noonan. Troopers from the eastern side of the state, as well as troopers from New York and New Jersey, are searching for those involved.

“It’s a grave concern to us and we are putting every resource available to the Pennsylvania State Police or law enforcement in Pennsylvania in action,” the commissioner said.

Officials did not have a description of the gunman or gunmen, but said they do not believe the public is in danger.
