Suspected cop killer is dead, police say

Jason Robison, the suspect in state Trooper Landon Weaver’s killing, is dead.

Robison, on Dec. 17, posted on Facebook that “the only good cop was a dead cop.”

Police say that Robison shot and killed Weaver at about 6:30 p.m. Friday when the officer responded to a “domestic-related incident.” Robison died late Saturday morning, according to authorities.

The suspected cop killer was found by police, refused orders and threatened law enforcement, which led to his death, according an Associated Press report.

Police and Governor Tom Wolf advised anyone who knew of Robison’s whereabouts to avoid the suspect for their own safety and to call 911. Wolf called state troopers “our best and bravest Pennsylvanians.”

Weaver enlisted with police in December 2015 and was assigned to Troop G in Huntingdon. He is the 97th member of the Pennsylvania State Police to be killed in the line of duty.
