alert I would like to inform our campus community that Eric Frein, the shooter who allegedly killed one police officer and critically injured a second on September 12, has been captured near Tannersville, Pa. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the FBI, U.S. Marshals, and State, Regional and University Police for keeping our campus safe and withstanding six weeks of unpredictable weather to respond to tips and search the vast Pocono Mountains to find Mr. Frein. The dedication of these officers has been remarkable. My hope is that lives can now return to normalcy and we can all feel safe.
