Prince George's County police say a person of interest in the slaying of a Maryland state trooper remains in custody, but has not been arrested.

Investigators say the unidentified man is the same individual described as an unruly customer, who was escorted from a restaurant by Trooper Wesley Brown shortly before Brown was shot and killed late last week.

A police spokesperson says the man, still considered a person of interest, was located over the weekend and interviewed by police. Investigators say they're interested in what information the man can give them. He's currently being held by police on an unrelated charge.

Governor O'Malley has ordered the State flag to be flown at half-staff in memory of the state trooper. Meanwhile a $75,000 reward is offered for information leading to the arrest of the person who shot and killed Brown.
