From this story in the Pittsburg Post-Gazette:
_It's a dangerous job. Along with checking hunting licenses, responding to nuisance deer complaints and disposing of road kill, wildlife conservation officers with the Pennsylvania Game Commission serve arrest warrants, confront armed trespassers and disarm wildlife poachers, sometimes while alone at night on remote country roads. That's what Wildlife Conservation Officer David L. Grove was doing about 10:30 p.m. Thursday in a rural part of southcentral Pennsylvania when he was shot and killed by a suspected poacher. He was the first Game Commission official killed in the line of duty in 95 years. Mr. Grove, 31, of Fairfield, Adams County, was responding to reports of gunfire and suspected wildlife poaching on Shrivers Road in Freedom Township, near Gettysburg, according to the Pennsylvania State Police and The Associated Press. Mr. Grove pulled over a pickup truck with two people inside. Gunfire was exchanged, and the passenger fled the vehicle. Mr. Grove was shot four times and mortally wounded. Backup arrived two minutes after the shooting, and Mr. Grove died 45 minutes later.
