Authorities say two Pennsylvania state troopers were shot and the suspect was killed outside a grocery store south of Pittsburgh.

Uniontown State Police say that a "situation" took place at the Shop N' Save located on West Church Street in Fairchance around 8:00 pm.

Investigators said when the suspect, Clarence Belsar, 26, saw the troopers approaching, he began walking away and ignored commands to stop. A struggle ensued as troopers tried to arrest him, and Belsar pulled out a gun and fired one shot, striking both troopers.

South Korea joint drills may bring catastrophe to region, says Pyongyang
Kim told Guterres the resolution "constitutes a flagrant infringement upon (North Korea's) sovereignty and an open challenge to it". "But we don't need to be impatient", he said.

One of the troopers was treated and released for a wound to the hand. A message left with the Fairchance Police Department wasn't immediately returned. Nearby witnesses stated they heard around 15-shots at the Shop N' Save in Fayette County.

Nobody else was harmed, Ruggery said.

Observers raced to the fallen troopers to render medical aid and call 911 quickly following the gunfire, he said. Representatives of the Fayette County coroner's office also were at the scene. "Providing a safe environment for our employees and guests is our number one concern".
