Police in Pittsburgh identified 29-year-old Rahmael Sal Holt as a suspect in the fatal shooting of rookie officer Brian Shaw, 25, and issued a warrant for his arrest.

The 47-year-old mother was arrested Monday night.

Holt was reportedly arrested at about 5 a.m. today at a home on Ladora Way in Hazelwood after law enforcement agencies received a tip. Also arrested were several members of Holt's family, including his mother, Sherry Holt, on charges of hindering apprehension.

Holt's cousin, Marcel Mason, and the cousin's girlfriend, Aysa Benson, face similar charges.

"The Jeep never stopped", Dupilka wrote in the complaint. Police say SWAT team members surrounded the house after tracking Holt there from a location in Duquesne.

At an emotional press conference Tuesday morning, New Kensington police chief Jim Klein said Shaw was an exemplary officer.

Shaw's funeral is set for Wednesday.

Police have said Holt was a passenger in the vehicle and shot the rookie officer in the chest while he was chasing Holt on foot. He added that New Kensington police operations will resume later this week.
