HANOVER, Pa. (AP) - State police say a male was shot and killed after fleeing a traffic stop in central Pennsylvania.

Police in Dauphin County say a Hummelstown police officer tried to stop the man’s car at about 4 p.m. Monday.

He said there was an altercation between the male and the officer, who fired shots, and the subject was pronounced dead at the scene. The officer was uninjured.

The person’s name and other details weren’t immediately released.
