(Hollidaysburg) -- A prosecutor says a shooting along a rural road in central Pennsylvania has left four people dead, including the gunman. Three state troopers were injured. 

Blair County District Attorney Rich Consiglio says the shooting scene on Friday morning "extended over several miles" in Frankstown Township, Blair County, about 70 miles west of Harrisburg.

Consiglio says the dead were three men and one woman.

State police say one trooper was struck by gunfire but escaped serious injury because he was wearing a bulletproof vest.

Consiglio says a second trooper was hit by shattered glass and a third was in a crash involving the gunman.

He says the public isn't at risk.

Township supervisor Mark Schroyer says nearby schools weren't placed on lockdown. 

The identities of the victims and gunman weren't immediately released.
