Police have identified a suspect in the tragic shooting of a rookie officer in western Pennsylvania. Per CNN, authorities named Rahmael Sal Holt, 29, as the alleged gunman who killed officer Brian Shaw Friday during a traffic stop turned foot chase. Details about the incident are still unfolding, including why Holt was pulled over and how many gunshots were fired, the Washington Post reports. A warrant for Holt’s arrest has been issued. “Consider Holt armed and dangerous!” Pennsylvania State Police warned in a tweet calling for tips. A $40,000 reward has been posted for information leading to the suspect’s arrest as a manhunt is under way (the money was reportedly pooled from multiple agencies, including the FBI.)
"If you look back in the history of many horrific incidents, a very small, minute tip could be the tipping point to lead us in a direction of who the person was that committed this crime,” said a Pennsylvania State Police spokesman. The Allegheny County Police Department offered condolences to Shaw’s family and colleagues in a Facebook post, writing, “Your life mattered and you will be missed.” Shaw, 25, had been on the force for under a year. According to his obituary, he is survived by his parents, brother, grandmother, and girlfriend. “He will always be remembered for his charismatic, outgoing personality and addictive smile,” it said.
