Man Accused of Shooting Georgia Police Officer Has Been Arrested

The man suspected of fatally shooting a Georgia police officer has been located and taken into custody.

The victim, Alamo Police Officer Dylan Harrison, 26, leaves behind a wife and six month old baby. It was his first day on the job.

According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Harrison was shot outside of the Alamo police station around 1 a.m. on Saturday.

Damian Ferguson, 43, who also uses the alias Luke Ferguson, was named as the primary suspect — but was not immediately apprehended and a manhunt ensued. GBI also offered a $17,500 reward for any information leading to his arrest.

On Sunday, Ferguson was taken into custody without incident by the U.S. Marshals Special Operations Group SWAT team less than one mile away from where Harrison was shot dead, according to a Tweet from Georgia Department of Public Safety.

Harrison had just started working part time with the Alamo Police Department. He was previously employed full time with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation drug task force in Eastmond.
