HUMMELSTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Authorities have identified a man shot and killed after allegedly fleeing a traffic stop in central Pennsylvania.

The Dauphin County coroner’s office said 59-year-old David Kassick was shot multiple times during the altercation outside his South Hanover Township residence.

State police said a Hummelstown police officer tried to stop Kassick’s car at about 4 p.m. Monday, but he fled and drove home.

Police said Kassick fled on foot behind the home, where the altercation occurred and the officer fired shots.

Coroner Graham Hetrick said Tuesday that Kassick was pronounced dead at the scene. He said the female officer, whose name was not released, was uninjured.

Trooper Robert Hicks, a state police spokesman, said state police and county prosecutors are investigating.
