Suspected killer of Pennsylvania officer Brian Shaw caught
The suspected killer of a New Kensington police officer has been arrested after a three-day manhunt, authorities said early Tuesday.
State police said 29-year-old Rahmael Sal Holt was taken into custody without incident in Hazelwood at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday. Holt is accused of killing New Kensington Officer Brian Shaw during a traffic stop Friday night.
The FBI, Marshals, Allegheny County Police and the Pittsburgh SWAT team surrounded a home in the 5000 block of Ladora Way. They had been following Holt throughout the night as he moved from Duquesne to Homewood and eventually to the home in Hazelwood, reports CBS Pittsburgh.
Three people were arrested for hindering Holt’s apprehension, including his mother, the station says. Four other people were arrested on outstanding warrants.
Earlier, police in suburban Pittsburgh said they arrested the driver of an SUV who fled the traffic stop and left Holt behind.
On Sunday, police arrested Tavon Jamere Harper, who they allege fled the traffic stop after Holt bolted from the SUV.
