Manhunt underway after police officer slain in Pennsylvania

Police officer in Pennsylvania shot and killed after traffic stop

The shooting occurred around 8 p.m. Friday in New Kensington, about 30 kilometers northeast of Pittsburgh.

"Frances and I are mourning the senseless death of New Kensington police officer Brian Shaw", Governor Wolf said in a statement.

An intense search was under way in western Pennsylvania Saturday morning for a suspect in the fatal shooting of a police officer.

Shaw had served as a part-time officer in three other towns before joining the New Kensington police force full time in June.

The Pennsylvania Police Department is not releasing details about the shooting, but will provide a more detailed description later when they feel it will not compromise the investigation.
