$50K reward offered for tips on trooper’s slaying

BLOOMING GROVE, Pa. (AP) — A nonprofit group is offering a $50,000 reward for tips about the deadly ambush at a state police barracks in northeast Pennsylvania.

One trooper died and a second was critically wounded in the shooting Friday night at the remote post in Pike County.

Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers posted the reward offer Sunday. It’s asking anyone with information to call 800-4PA-TIPS or submit the tip online (http://bit.ly/1qOzY13).

Law enforcement officers from at least three states searched state game lands surrounding the barracks in Blooming Grove on Saturday. No arrests have been made.

The attack killed Cpl. Bryon Dickson of Dunmore, a married father of two. Trooper Alex Douglass remains hospitalized.
