DAUPHIN COUNTY, Pa. -A U.S. marshal was killed and at least two officers were wounded Thursday morning when gunfire erupted during the service of a warrant, Fox News reports.

 The shooting occurred about 6:10 a.m. in a residential area that was still locked down by police and clogged with law enforcement vehicles more than three hours later.

Harrisburg Mayor Eric Papenfuse said three officers were shot, including a Harrisburg cop. He did not specify if the U.S. Marshal was included in the count. The U.S. marshal died at the hospital, reported.

“Harrisburg mourns the loss this morning of a U.S. Marshal who died protecting our residents. While serving a warrant as part of the U.S. Marshal’s task force, three officers were shot, including a Harrisburg police officer, who was wounded,” Papenfuse said in the statement.

“No words can adequately express the sadness we feel at this moment as we contemplate the loss of yet another law enforcement officer in the line of duty. I extend my sincerest condolences to the family of the slain U.S. Marshal, to his colleagues and to all law enforcement officers who risk their lives each day to protect and to serve our city and our nation.”

The mayor added the Harrisburg officer “bravely returned fire and critically injured the gunman.” Dauphin County District Attorney Fran Chardo said in an earlier news conference that there is no danger to the public.

Another York City Police officer assigned to the U.S. Marshal’s Task Force was shot in the incident. He was taken to the hospital and his injuries are said to be not life threatening, FOX43 reported.



The details are still coming in and they will hold press conferences throughout the day.  It is being reported that during the gunfire, the residential home in which they were surrounding to serve the warrant, opened fire on the task force.

The details about who and why are being withheld at this time, they did say that someone was shot by the task force and their condition is unknown at this time.

Dauphin County District Attorney Fran Chardo said there was “no current danger to the public,” and that the suspect was “not at large.”


Chardo said he could not give additional details because of the ongoing investigation. A news conference at the Federal Building is scheduled for 2 pm.

Back in December of 2017, there was shooting in the same area that the U.S. Marshalls were serving a warrant in today.

Interesting fact by PENNLIVE about the shooting on December 28, 2017:

Ahmed El-Mofty was shot and killed by Police Officers during Mofty’s gunfire rampage.  El-Mofty first fired shots into the air in the 100 block of State Street and at Third and State streets before shooting at the Capitol Police car at 4:06 p.m. near the Capitol and the Ronald Reagan Federal Building at Third and Walnut streets. A bullet struck the windshield of the cruiser, but the officer wasn’t injured.

Police stated that this was not terror related and that Mofty had spent 3 years in Egypt recently before his rampage.   The FBI of course are the ones who released that this was not terror related, maybe it wasn’t but with the lies and corruption spewing out of the FBI these days, who really knows.

We will keep you updated as we learn more about todays tragic shooting.  Our prayers go out to the officers involved and their families.  The Marshal who was murdered during the gunfight, may he rest in peace and prayers to his family.
