Members of the Pennsylvania State Police and law enforcement conservation officers with the Pennsylvania Game Commission walk from the state police barracks to a wooded area across the street on Route 402 to investigate near where two Pennsulvania State troopers were ambushed Friday, on Sunday, Sept. 14, 2014, in Blooming Grove Township, Pa.

A funeral will be held Thursday for a Pennsylvania State Police trooper who was killed in an ambush outside his barracks.

Cpl. Bryon K. Dickson II was killed and another trooper was critically wounded in the Friday night attack at the Blooming Grove barracks. Police are still hunting for the killer.

Dickson's funeral is Thursday morning at a Roman Catholic cathedral in Scranton.

The Marine Corps veteran joined the state police in 2007. He's survived by his wife of 10 years and two young sons.

Authorities say the wounded trooper, Alex Douglass, is conscious and talking for the first time since he underwent surgery.

Police have no motive for the late-night attack in rural northeatern Pennsylvania but say they are following up on leads.
