Assult Then Arson

TROOPER3Maryland Trooper 3 searches for a armed subject (axe and gun) while nearly a hundred hale bales burn Friday evening as seen from the National Peace Light on the historic Gettysburg Battlefield. What started as an assult at the peace light turned into a manhunt and arson job. The Gettysburg FIre Department as well as mutual aide companies battled the fire while numerous police agencies from Pennsylvania and Maryland searched for the subject. According to the morning newspaper, the subject was captured near the Gettysburg College and is now a resident of the Adams County Prison. Photo by 911 Photography’s Chris Eiker
