(Gettysburg) -- A passenger riding along with a man who killed a Pennsylvania Game Commission officer investigating them for deer poaching says the shooter told him before the killing that he wouldn't go back to jail.
Ryan Laumann says he and Christopher Johnson knew they were in legal trouble when Wildlife Conservation Officer David Grove pulled them over on the night of Nov. 1, 2010 after they killed a deer in Freedom Township, near Gettysburg.
That's when Laumann says Johnson, a felon in possession of a firearm, told him he wasn't going back to jail. Laumann told the jury hearing Johnson's murder trial that Johnson fired at the officer's vehicle three more times after the initial exchange of gunfire.
Johnson's attorney has said her client didn't intend to kill Grove.
Testimony continues tomorrow. The out-of-town jury hearing the case is from Lancaster County
