The man then shot and critically wounded a Pennsylvania State Police lieutenant in Mifflintown Borough at about 12:45 pm before fleeing again. Shortly before 3:00 pm, the man was located in a shopping center in Walker Township and then fled into a nearby wooded area where he and Trooper Rougeau were both killed during a shootout.

Trooper Rougeau had served with the Pennsylvania State Police for almost three years. He is survived by his wife, mother, sister, brother, niece, and two nephews.
