(AP) -

A 31-year-old man has been arrested in the shooting death of a veteran police officer who was responding to a domestic dispute in western Pennsylvania.

State police say Ray Shetler Jr. was captured at about 3:15 a.m. Sunday after a six-hour manhunt while walking near a power plant outside New Florence, which is about 60 miles east of Pittsburgh.

Police believe Shetler shot St. Clair Township Officer Lloyd Reed on Saturday night after officers were called to a domestic situation in New Florence. Reed, who had been an officer for more than 20 years, was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Trooper Stephen Limani says Shetler is being treated for a gunshot wound to the right shoulder and will then be taken in for questioning. Shetler hasn't yet been charged with a crime.

Limani says a female involved in the domestic situation suffered minor injuries.
