Police officer shot and killed, suspect flees

A manhunt is underway for the suspect.

The officer was identified as officer Brian Shaw, 25.

The shooting happened shortly after 8 p.m. Friday in New Kensington, about 18 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Steven Limani said that Shaw's colleagues thought fondly of him and that his presence at the department will be missed.

Residents and multiple law enforcement agencies contributed funds to offer a $43,500 reward for information leading to Holt's arrest. He shot and killed 25-year-old Officer Brian Shaw on November 17.

They should realize that is better not to be proxies of Pakistan and return and join mainstream so that peace is restored. Addressing a press conference, Lt General Sandhu said,"We have killed about 190 terrorists as on date, in 2017".

The Pennsylvania Police Department is not releasing details about the shooting, but will provide a more detailed description later when they feel it will not compromise the investigation.

Holt was charged by authorities with first-degree murder and murder of a police officer.

Officers from Westmoreland County and neighboring Allegheny County, as well as Pittsburgh police, combed the area overnight and processed the scene, CNN affiliate KDKA reported.

Holt is to be considered armed and risky and anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to call 911.

One tribute honored the fallen officer with a moment of silence at Saturday night's National Hockey league (NHL) game between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Chicago Blackhawks.
