Barrett Township, PA. — The manhunt for a suspected cop killer shifted again Monday, but by nightfall had returned to the area where law enforcement focused their search efforts in recent days.

At about 11 a.m., state police cruisers, lights flashing, roared down Route 447, turning onto Spruce Cabin Road to establish a perimeter. More positioned themselves along the eastern edge of Route 447 and peered into the trees. The perimeter wrapped around to Route 390 and continued to the area near the Barrett Township Elementary Center, which was being used as a staging area, then it wrapped back east.

State troopers appeared on high alert.

Monday marked the 17th full day of searching for Eric Matthew Frein. Police accuse the 31-year-old of taking position outside of the Blooming Grove barracks Pike County with a .308-caliber rifle and opening fire during a late-night shift change on Sept. 12, killing state police Cpl. Bryon Dickson II and severely wounding Trooper Alex Douglass. State police said he then disappeared into the vast surrounding woodlands. Frein, of 308 Seneca Lane, Canadensis, left behind his parents’ Jeep Cherokee in a swampy retention pond two miles north of the barracks.
