Jacksonville, FL —
The day long manhunt for a cop killer ends with the arrest of a 16 year-old in St. Petersburg.
Tips led police to the teenager, who now faces a murder charge in Monday's shooting death of Officer David Crawford. He's the third St. Pete officer killed in the line of duty in the past month.
Crawford was shot multiple times Monday night while investigating a report of a prowler in a neighborhood just south of the field where the Tampa Bay Rays play baseball.
About 24 hours later, officials gathered near police headquarters to announce that Nicholas Lindsey was in custody.
Police Chief Chuck Harmon says three tips led officers to the teen and that police are still looking for the gun.
The teen has a prior juvenile criminal record but Harmon didn't give details.
