A man was killed by police after going on a shooting spree in Harrisburg, Pa., on Friday, firing at multiple police cars before he was shot, according to authorities.

The suspect first fired at a Capitol Police vehicle near the statehouse Friday after 4 p.m. afternoon, according to Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico.

There was an officer inside the car but he was not injured, Marsico said.

The gunman shot at Pennsylvania State police officers and targeted a Harrisburg cop cruiser.

One law enforcement officer was “slightly injured” in the second shooting, Marsico said.

The triggerman, who has not been identified, was later killed in a shootout with Harrisburg and Pennsylvania State police.

The state bomb squad responded to the scene after a “device” was found near the shooter, Marsico said. His car was also being examined by forensics teams.

Multiple police agencies are currently investigating the incident.

“This individual showed that he was not afraid to fire at different law enforcement officers,” according to Marsico.
