BROCKWAY, Pa. (EYT) – According to Punxsutawney-based State Police, drug charges have been filed against the son of a Brockway man who took his own life after shooting a DuBois State Trooper last year.

Police say on September 11, 2013, a search warrant was obtained for a residence on Cemetery Road, in Brockway, Jefferson County, occupied by Kenneth Raymond Lees, II, and law enforcement personnel were holding Lees’ father at bay in a standoff.

In the process of serving the warrant, Trooper Bradley K. Wilson, PSP DuBois, was shot by Lees’ father. Lees’ father took his own life prior to officers gaining entry into the house, according to police.
