Trooper Fatally Shoots Md. Motorist On Pa. Turnpike

CRYSTAL SPRING, Pa. (AP) — State police say a trooper fatally shot a motorist from Maryland who attacked him following a traffic accident on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

Police said Wednesday that Daryl Jerome Berry, 45, of Columbia, Md., and the other motorist were arguing when the trooper arrived at the scene of a collision in the eastbound lanes in Brush Creek Township, Fulton County.

Police said Berry approached the trooper Tuesday night with a pair of aggressive dogs, then hit him repeatedly with a flashlight.
The trooper fired, killing Berry, police said.

An autopsy performed at Lehigh Valley Medical Center found Berry suffered three gunshot wounds.

State police did not identify the trooper, who was flown to Altoona Hospital for treatment of his injuries.
