ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Mourners gathered for the funeral of Pennsylvania trooper Bryon Dickson who was killed in an ambush attack outside his barracks last week. Hundreds of officers from Pennsylvania and surrounding states lined the streets outside St. Peters' Cathedral in Scranton as the funeral procession got underway. Corporal Dickson was shot dead in the parking lot of his barracks and another trooper was seriously injured. The shooting happened during a shift change. Police have identified the suspect as Eric Matthew Frein, an anti-law enforcement survivalist and expert marksman. An extensive manhunt is underway for Frein who authorities say is a member of a Cold War re-enactment group that assumes the roles of soldiers from Eastern European countries.
