Trooper Landon Weaver’s killer was shot dead in an encounter with the Police! At a press conference Dec. 31, Pennsylvania police said Jason Robison, the suspect behind the fatal shooting of State Police Trooper Landon Weaver Dec. 30, was killed during a confrontation with the police. State police said they found Jason Robison at an unoccupied mobile home not far from his own home in Huntington County.
“Robison refused commands to surrender, made threats to harm additional law enforcement personnel, and was shot and killed in the ensuing confrontation,” the state police said on their Facebook page. Robison had been hunted ever since the police concluded he shot Trooper Landon Weaver. Weaver was on a domestic violence call on Bakers Hollow Road in Juniata Township, about 85 miles east of Pittsburgh.
Robison had a massive criminal record: twelve arrests with charges varying from simple assault to arson. Still, much remained unclear about was there any motive in the alleged attack on Weaver.
Trooper Landon Weaver’s funeral arrangements have been announced. Friends will be received from 12 to 3 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Jaffa Shrine Center, 2200 Broad Avenue in Altoona. The funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday at the Jaffa Shrine Center. Interment, with full honors accorded by the Pennsylvania State Police, will be held at Fairview Cemetery, Martinsburg.
