CANADENSIS, Pa. (AP) -- Authorities continue to search the area where the man suspected in last week's deadly ambush at a Pennsylvania State Police barracks lived with his parents.

Residents stuck outside their wooded Pocono Mountains neighborhood were allowed to return to their homes after daybreak Saturday. But a shelter in place order remained in effect.

A police dispatcher said gunfire was reported just before 7 p.m. Friday. Residents in Price and Barrett townships were told to stay inside because of heavy police activity.

State police would not say whether they believe they have 31-year-old Eric Frein (freen) surrounded. Police say he fatally shot one trooper and wounded a second with a high-powered rifle on Sept. 12.

Frein has been described as a self-taught survivalist with a grudge against law enforcement.
