Authorities are seeking a suspect in the fatal shooting of a rookie police officer.
The location of the shooting took place in the 1200 block of Leishman Avenue in New Kensington around 8:15 p.m. Friday, according to CBS Pittsburgh.
Police officials identified 29-year-old Rahmael Sal Holt as the person who shot and killed Officer Brian Shaw. He shot the officer during the chase, New Kensington Police Chief James Klein said at a news conference.
