November 11, 1993 - December 30, 2016
Trooper Landon E. Weaver was born in Altoona, PA on November 11, 1993. After graduating from Central High School in 2012, he attended the Indiana University of Pennsylvania before enlisting with the Pennsylvania State Police in December 2015. On June 17, 2016, he graduated the Academy and was assigned to Troop G, Huntingdon.
Trooper Weaver was killed in the line of duty on December 30, 2016, while investigating a protection from abuse (PFA) order violation. The incident began when Trooper Weaver was dispatched to a local restaurant parking lot, where it was reported a Jason Robison was gaining access to a vehicle owned by his estranged girlfriend, who had an active protection from abuse order against him and was working at the restaurant. Robison fled the scene prior to Trooper Weaver’s arrival.
Trooper Weaver, after interviewing the victim and witnesses, attempted to locate Robison. He ultimately discovered Robison at a residence located along Bakers Hollow Road, Juniata Township, Huntingdon County and interviewed him. At some point during this interaction, Robison produced a handgun, shooting and killing Trooper Weaver.
A large contingent of Troopers converged on the residence and initiated an extensive manhunt for Robison that lasted throughout the night and into the following day. On December 31, 2016 at 0950 hours, Robison was located by Troop G members in a camper not far from the scene. Robison, armed with a handgun and refusing to comply with commands, was shot and killed.
Over 2,000 law enforcement officers from across the country were in attendance for Trooper Weaver’s memorial service, held at the Blair County Convention Center.
Trooper Weaver is survived by his wife, Macy, his parents, Eric and Christine, and his brother, Larett.
At 23 years of age, Trooper Weaver was the 97th member of the Department to be killed in the line of duty. He completed one year of Pennsylvania State Police service.
Trooper Weaver is laid to rest at the Fairview Cemetery, Martinsburg, Pennsylvania.
