"The Jeep never stopped", Dupilka wrote in the complaint.

The New Kensington Police Chief Jim Klein praised the fallen officer for his dedicated service during a press briefing on Tuesday.

According to Peck, Shaw attempted to make a traffic stop last Friday at around 8 p.m. when the passenger of the auto, Holt, fled on foot.




They tracked down Harper and found him Saturday with $2,500 cash and bags of suspected heroin, according to a criminal complaint.
