31-Year-old Kevin Sturgis was killed by return fire, after fatally shooting a U.S. Marshal serving a warrant in Harrisburg Thursday morning.

The slain marshal was 45-year-old Christopher David Hill, an 11-year veteran of the agency.

Officers were serving an arrest warrant for a woman wanted by police for making terroristic threats.

Cops say Sturgis, who also had active warrants, opened fire after the fugitive, Shayla Pierce, was handcuffed.

Two local police officers suffered non-life threatening injuries.
