(**Update)State Police identify man killed in officer-involved shooting in Warren Co., PA...
 
A prosecutor says a shooting by a police officer just south of Warren, Pennsylvania in the parking lot of an ice cream stand that killed an armed driver following a traffic stop appears to have been justified.  State police in Erie say 54-year-old Joseph Miller of Clarendon was killed in the 7:15 p.m. Friday confrontation in Mead Township.  Officials said a Warren City officer pulled Miller over for erratic driving in the area of the Dairy Delite at the junction of Routes 6 and 59.  However... while he was talking to the officer in the parking lot... Miller became agitated and began loading an AK-47 rifle.  Authorities said the officer backed away and ordered him to stop, but Miller continued to load the weapon and was shot and killed as he exited the vehicle.  Warren County District Attorney Rob Greene said the shooting is under investigation... but, appears to have been justified.
