Pennsylvania troopers shoot and kill suicidal man on highway bridge


Pennsylvania state troopers shot and killed a suicidal man who refused to let go of his gun while standing on a highway bridge Wednesday.

Troopers responded to the Route 33 South overpass bridge in Monroe County and found 19-year-old Christian Hall armed with a gun, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

Trooper tried to get Hall to drop his weapon and he complied. He then became uncooperative and began walking towards the troopers while pointing at them with the gun, state police said.

Hall was shot by troopers and taken into custody. He was then rushed to Pocono Medical Center in East Stroudsburg where he died.

Police continue to investigate the incident.
