Authorities in Pennsylvania are searching for a gunman after a foot pursuit near Pittsburgh on Sunday ended with one police officer being shot and killed and another being injured.

The deceased officer was named Brackenridge Police Chief Justin McIntire in a tweet by the state attorney general and incoming governor Josh Shapiro.

Shapiro wrote in the tweet that “today’s tragedy in Brackenridge is a terrible reminder of the bravery of those who put their lives on the line every day to defend us.

“Police Chief Justin McIntire gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to the community by running toward danger to keep Pennsylvanians safe.”

Within a few blocks of one another, two gunshots took place in the community of Brackenridge in Allegheny County, northeast of Pittsburgh.

After the shootings on Sunday afternoon, the gunman carjacked a vehicle, according to acting police superintendent Victor Joseph, who said the man was “hazardous.”

Officers from various law enforcement organizations were searching for a suspect, identified as 28-year-old Duquesne resident Aaron Lamont Swan.

Swan was sought on a parole violation involving a weapons charge, according to police spokesman Christopher Kearns.

The identity of the cops was not immediately made public by Brackenridge police. According to police spokesman Christopher Kearns, the officer killed was shot in the head.

He stated that the second officer, who had sustained a leg injury, was expected to live.
