BLOOMING GROVE TWP. — Eric Matthew Frein is now a federal fugitive.

U.S. Magisterial Judge Thomas M. Blewitt issued the warrant Tuesday for the 31-year-old Canadensis man, wanted by state police for murdering a state trooper, on the charge of flight to avoid prosecution.

The warrant was public but the affidavit supporting it was sealed.

Mr. Frein, 308 Seneca Lane, is accused of ambushing Cpl. Bryon K. Dickson II, 38, and Trooper Alex T. Douglass, 31, during a shift change Friday night at the state police at Blooming Grove barracks.

Cpl. Dickson, of Dunmore, was shot twice and died at the scene; Trooper Douglass, of Olyphant, is recovering at Geisinger Community Medical Center from a gunshot wound to his pelvis.
