PennLive reports that several U.S. Marshal vehicles were parked outside a Pennsylvania hospital's emergency room after Deputy U.S. Marshal Deputy Christopher David Hill was shot while serving a warrant.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Christopher Hill, 45, was shot and killed.

York City Police said one of its officers was shot and was being treated at a hospital for what were described as non-life-threatening injuries.

Sturgis had active warrants in Philadelphia for not showing up for sentencing on a gun charge, and for failing to appear at a probation violation hearing. The officers were conducting a search warrant between 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. when the shooting began, Police Chief Tom Carter said.

The shooting happened in a residential neighborhood 1.5 miles from the state Capitol complex.

A "hero" USA marshal was shot and killed and another police officer was wounded Thursday morning in Harrisburg, Penn., when gunfire erupted during the service of a warrant.

The Harrisburg police officer was wounded, returned fire and "critically injured the gunman", according to Papenfuse.

"He will be missed, and words can not say how much", Pane said. Frein was sentenced to death a year ago.

"Chris is the cream of the crop". He is survived by his wife and two children, according to the press release. "He's one of our best and. you would probably not find a better tactical operator in the state of Pennsylvania". "We will honor his memory by standing with his family and his brothers and sisters in law enforcement".

"Chris Hill's name should also be remembered as synonymous with valor".

"Harrisburg mourns the loss this morning of a US Marshal who died protecting our residents".

Pane said Hill was a member of a highly-trained special operations group and led a team during the manhunt for Eric Frein, who ambushed two Pennsylvania troopers at a police barracks in 2014 and then led officers on a 48-day manhunt through rugged terrain.
