A search is on for a man suspected of fatally shooting a Pennsylvania state trooper on Friday evening.

“Trooper Landon Weaver was tragically shot and killed while investigating a domestic-related incident,” Pennsylvania State Police on its Facebook page.

Jason Robison, 32, is the suspect in the shooting.

“Robison should be considered armed and dangerous,” state police said.
