(Chambersburg) -- The attorney representing a Union County teenager accused of shooting at a state trooper on Interstate 81 over the weekend says his client will plead not guilty at a hearing this week.

Attorney Steve Rice says some counts of attempted homicide and attempted homicide of a law enforcement officer were being dropped, leaving one count of each.

Police allege  the Mifflinburg 16-year-old stole a car and a gun and fired at a trooper who stopped him on I-81 Sunday morning near Chambersburg.

The trooper fired back, but neither was injured.

Police said the shooting is unrelated to a January road rage incident in Antrim Township on I-81 that left a 28-year-old Maine man dead.
