MIFFLINTOWN - A man seriously injured during a shootout with police nearly three years ago passed away at a residence in Juniata County recently. The Sentinel reports, Juniata County District Attorney Cory Snook says 32-year-old Brian Janson, died last Wednesday, and the cause of death has yet to be determined. Snook did not want to speculate as to whether or not Janson succumbed to the injuries sustained during the shooting, or if some other factor caused his death. Snook said an autopsy was done on Janson and the Pennsylvania State Police are awaiting toxicology results. Snook said he will be filing a motion with the court to have Janson's charges dismissed. Janson was charged with several counts of attempted homicide, among other charges following the incident in August 2010 in a stand-off with state troopers along Cuba Mills Lane in Juniata County.
