Police still searching for person who killed rookie officer, offering $40,000 reward

Pennsylvania residents who came to the aid of a rookie police officer who was fatally shot and killed during a traffic stop say he was “gasping for air” and not responsive when they arrived at the scene.

Brian Shaw was shot in the chest around 8:15 p.m. Friday in New Kensington, about 18 miles (29 kilometers) northeast of Pittsburgh. The shooting occurred during a foot chase that began shortly after the traffic stop took place.

Police later recovered an older model of an unoccupied brown Jeep Grand Cherokee, wanted in connection with the shooting. State police said Saturday that investigators know why the suspected shooter was pulled over but would not provide further details, citing the ongoing investigation.

A description of the suspect has not been released.
