A 32-year-old Pennsylvania man suspected of killing a state trooper is dead, state police said Saturday, APA reports quoting Fox News.

Police launched a manhunt for Robinson Friday evening after a state trooper was gunned down while responding to a report of a protection-from-abuse violation. Troopers warned that Robinson was “armed and dangerous.”

Trooper Landon Weaver was killed around 6:30 p.m. at a home in Juniata Township that was reportedly owned by Robinson’s mother.

Authorities said they were looking for Robinson in connection with the shooting in a Facebook post.

Weaver enlisted in the Pennsylvania State Police in December 2015 and was assigned to the Patrol Unit in Troop G in Huntingdon. He's the 97th member of the Pennsylvania State Police to be killed in the line of duty.
