BLOOMING GROVE, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett will discuss the manhunt for a gunman who launched a deadly ambush outside a police barracks 10 days ago.

Corbett is scheduled to hold a news conference in Blooming Grove late this morning.

Authorities say they've had no confirmed sightings of Eric Frein (freen), who is charged with killing one trooper and seriously wounding another late on Sept. 12.

Police say they have found an assault rifle he was carrying and believe they are hot on his trail in the dense northeastern Pennsylvania woods.
