A gunman shot a Pennsylvania state trooper when the officer attempted to serve a warrant Thursday afternoon in Jefferson County, an agency spokeswoman in Harrisburg said.

The trooper, whose name was not released, was taken by medical helicopter to UPMC Altoona Hospital, where he was in stable condition, spokeswoman Maria Finn said.

The trooper was part of a unit serving a warrant at an address on Cemetery Hill Road in Brockway, which is about 100 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, Finn said.

A state police Special Emergency Response Team and helicopter unit were dispatched to the scene.

As of late Thursday night, the shooter, who was not identified, was still in the building.
