Thousands pay respects to officer slain during traffic stop
NEW KENSINGTON, Pa. - Thousands of police officers from around the country turned out to pay respects to a rookie Pennsylvania police officer who was fatally shot in a traffic stop last week.
Law enforcement officers from as far away as Colorado and Rhode Island, as well as students and residents lined the roadways as Officer Brian Shaw's funeral procession moved through the streets of New Kensington on Wednesday. Some held handmade signs, like one that read, "God Bless Officer Shaw."
The 25-year-old was shot and killed Friday night when he tried to pull over an SUV for a routine traffic violation.
Mourners remembered Shaw for his smile, twinkling eyes and devotion to his job.
Authorities have charged 29-year-old Rahmael Holt with fatally shooting Shaw. Holt was arrested Tuesday after a multiday manhunt.
