(CNN) — Two Pennsylvania State Police troopers shot late Friday night, one fatally, were ambushed just outside the police barracks in Blooming Grove, Pennsylvania, Commissioner Frank Noonan told reporters. The shooter or shooters have not been found, he said.

“I know a lot of people are wondering if the threat is resolved. It is not,” he said.

Police don’t have a description of the shooters or any information about what the motive was. But Noonan said “this attack seems to be directed particularly at the Pennsylvania State Police.”

The shooting happened at 10:50 p.m. Friday night at the agency’s Blooming Grove barracks.

One trooper died in the shooting. Another was wounded, had surgery and is in stable condition, Noonan said.

He declined to release the identities of either trooper.

Police from New York, New Jersey and throughout the Northeast are assisting in the search for the shooter or shooters, Noonan said.
