No bail for suspect in fatal Pennsylvania cop shooting

Pennsylvania police officer's suspected killer captured

Rahmael Sal Holt has been sought since Friday night's shooting during an attempted traffic stop in New Kensington.

The man sought in connection with the shooting and killing Officer Brian Shaw is in custody, various media sources are reporting. He faces four charges, including first degree murder of a law enforcement officer and carrying a firearm without a license.

The Pennsylvania State Police on Tuesday announced the apprehension of 29-year-old Rahmael Sal Holt. Benson told investigators Holt showed up at their Duquesne house Saturday afternoon and she took him to a bus stop after he changed into clothes given to him by Mason, according to the complaint. "We need to find the person who did this", Police Chief Jim Klein said.

According to Peck, Shaw attempted to make a traffic stop last Friday at around 8 p.m. when the passenger of the auto, Holt, fled on foot.

On Sunday, police arrested Harper, who they allege fled the traffic stop after Holt bolted from the SUV.

"We are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of a local hero, Officer Brian Shaw", said Dave Soltesz, President of the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation.

On Sunday, detectives filed drug and fleeing charges against Harper.

Officers from different towns and municipalities were pitching in on the manhunt so the town's police department could grieve Shaw's death and attend services, New Kensington Mayor Tom Guzzo said.

Visitation resumed Tuesday, and a funeral Mass was planned for Wednesday.
