Trooper shooting suspect might try to target more officers, police say

(CNN) — He’s a survivalist with an extensive shooting background and a grudge against law enforcement, officials say.

Eric Matthew Frein apparently cut his hair into a mohawk-style haircut as part of his mental preparation for the attack on police and was active in a military simulation unit that reenacted Cold War-era European conflicts.

And now authorities worry the man suspected of gunning down two Pennsylvania State Police troopers may be on the hunt for more officers.

Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan said Wednesday investigators are trying to determine why Frein may have attacked in the small, central Pennsylvania town of Blooming Grove. But they know that, generally, Frein “has made statements about wanting to kill law enforcement officers and also to commit mass acts of murder,” according to Noonan.

“He has very strong feelings about law enforcement and seems to be very angry with a lot of things that go on in our society.”
