An officer was shot in Mckeesport, Pennsylvania around 4:00 PM this afternoon sparking a massive police manhunt for an individual suspected to have been involved in the shooting. ATF, SWAT, state and county police, as well as numerous local police departments are on scene and contributing resources, according to Dillon Carr a reporter with TRIB Live.

Koby Lee Francis, the suspected shooter according to Allegheny County spokeswoman Amie Downs, is a 22-year-old black male described as roughly 6’2″ with brown eyes and short black hair.

Francis was taken into custody earlier in the day and a search of his person revealed a concealed handgun. Unfortunately, Francis had a second firearm in his possession which was not found during the search. When he got out of the vehicle outside of the police station, he discharged this weapon striking the officer at least two times.

The officer, who has not been identified, was transported to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital and is in stable condition.
