Police ambush suspect manhunt upends daily life

The Associated Press

CANADENSIS, Pa. (AP) The massive manhunt for a suspected cop killer is upending daily life in the rural northeastern Pennsylvania area where police are looking for him.

Residents in the Canadensis area say they support police in the search for Eric Frein, who is charged with killing one state trooper and wounding a second during a Sept. 12 ambush outside their barracks.

But patience is wearing thin as the manhunt extends into a second week.

Police say they have been "diligent in respecting the rights of the public" while working to keep residents and officers safe.

Authorities believe Frein has been hiding in the dense woods surrounding his neighborhood. Roadblocks have popped up sporadically and without warning as law enforcement officials chase leads.

Frein is considered armed and dangerous.
