MEMPHIS - Memphis police say that a person of interest has been taken into custody in connection with the fatal shooting of a police officer.

Memphis Police Department spokeswoman Karen Rudolph told The Associated Press that a person is in custody but no charges have been filed.

She says the investigation is ongoing and did not give further details.

Police have been searching for a suspect in the killing of Officer Sean Bolton late Saturday during a traffic stop.

Bolton was shot near one of the main arteries in a working class neighborhood of southeast Memphis.

Police are looking for potential witnesses and are asking for members of the public who have information about the suspect to come forward.
