It may be a species of rove beetle.  They generally feed on carrion but I've seen them almost everywhere.  They do lift their tail like a scorpio when disturbed and I have been bitten by one and it feels almost like a bee sting.  I live in NEPA and I believe they are located statewide, not sure where you are at.  Hope this helped.

Thanks for the information. I will look up the rove beetle. I am in PA, but who know if they live here?
