Police Arrest Suspect in Deadly Shooting of Rookie Pennsylvania Officer

- 9:15 a.m.: Holt arrives at New Kensington District Judge Frank J. Pallone's office for arraignment on charges including criminal homicide and homicide of a police officer.

Holt is being held without bail at the Westmoreland County Prison.

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

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

Twenty-nine-year old Rahmael Sal Holt was arraigned Tuesday morning on charges including murder of a law enforcement officer.

Hundreds of friends, family members and officers waited in line for hours Monday night for Shaw's viewing.

Israeli soldier who killed wounded Palestinian denied presidential pardon
This rejection comes after Defense Minister, Avigdor Liberman, asked for a pardon in a letter to the president two weeks ago. Azaria was convicted of manslaughter in January for killing Abdul Fatah al-Sharif in Hebron in the occupied West Bank.

Peck said Shaw was attempting to pull the SUV over for a traffic violation that he characterized as "something minor".

Authorities said Shaw, a 25-year-old rookie officer, was shot in the chest while chasing Holt on foot.

Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation were offering $40,000 for information leading to Holt's arrest, but it is unclear whether that money will be rewarded to anyone.

Officers from several towns are assisting with the search, so that the New Kensington police can grieve Shaw's death. Details of the arrest are to be released in a news conference later Tuesday.

The man accused of fatally shooting a rookie police officer in western Pennsylvania is in custody.

Shaw's funeral is scheduled for Wednesday.
