Video footage of the suspected Pennsylvania State Police shooter was caught on a truck driver’s dashcam as they raced down the highway.

The suspect was assumed to be speeding towards Easton Hospital on Route 33.

On Tuesday, a Pennsylvania State Police trooper was shot at a traffic stop along the highway in Plainfield Township. The trooper attempted to arrest the suspect for impaired driving; however, things quickly got out of hand.

State police Capt. Richard D’Ambrosio said a “knock-down, drag-out fight” happened right before the suspect grabbed a firearm and shot the trooper 3 times.

Naturally, the trooper shot back. The trooper injured the suspect multiple times.

Thankfully, this driver was equipped with a dashcam in order to aid the investigation of this crime.
