Police officers from around the country gathered in Westmoreland County Wednesday morning to pay their respects as fallen Officer Brian Shaw was laid to rest.
Thousands of officers, first responders, military and members of the community lined the streets in New Kensington as Officer Shaw’s casket was led out of the funeral home, to the church and then to the cemetery. Officers traveled from as far away as Virginia and Colorado to pay their respects.
Officer Shaw, a rookie police office for the New Kensington Police Department, lost his life in the line of duty on Friday.
The man accused of shooting and killing him was arrested Tuesday after a four-day manhunt. 29-year-old Rahmael Sal Holt ran after being pulled over by Officer Shaw, and then opened fire.
