Penn State dedicates plaque to slain wildlife officer

Two men met along a dark road. David Grove, 31, a state conservation wildlife officer in Adams County, had pulled over a truck near the Gettsyburg National Military Park. He suspected its occupants had poached deer using a spotlight. Christopher Johnson, 29, sat behind the wheel, packing a .45 caliber handgun. A felon prohibited from carrying a firearm, he vowed to his passenger not to return to prison.
