Manhunt ends with man in slain deputy's cuffs

Manhunt ends with man in slain deputy's cuffs

Cote and Lancaster declined to answer questions about the encounter between Cole and Williams on Wednesday or what might have led to the shooting.

Williams was uninjured, police said.

The suspect in the killing of a Somerset County sheriff's deputy was taken into custody early Saturday afternoon with the handcuffs of the officer he's accused of shooting secured around his wrists.

It's unclear what preceded the shooting, but Cole had been involved in the arrest of Williams' girlfriend several days earlier, and Williams was anxious about being arrested himself for failing to appear in court in MA on firearm charges the day of the shooting.

The FBI, along with local and state agencies, offered a $20,000 for information leading to Williams's arrest. Officers put him into the back seat of an unmarked state police vehicle, and detectives whisked him away.

Williams was reportedly offended about his girlfriend's arrest and had informed a good friend that "as of tomorrow, I will be a fugitive".

Helicopters, cruisers and tactical autos prowled the area, making the area people of three, 500 nervous as scores of cops poured into the realm.




Officers have not said what sparked the shooting, nor how they came to suspect Williams. He was checked briefly by EMS then taken to the Waterville Police Department for questioning. According to CNN, more than 200 officers from various agencies including the Federal Bureau of Investigation were involved in the search for the shooter who shot and killed Cpl. Mr. Williams, be assured you'll be treated the same way Corporal Cole would've treated you if you had given him the opportunity: with dignity and respect.

The wife of a slain deputy in ME is imploring his killer to turn himself in, or at least reach out to police.

Lt. Col. John Cody of the Maine State Police said from the beginning of the four-day search, law enforcement believed they had contained Williams to a wooded area near Bear Mountain Road and Lost Brook.

The arrest has brought an end to the manhunt.

The station writes that it includes flowers, balloons and messages - a sign of how the community is grieving one of its officers of 13 years. Lancaster described him an "excellent worker, one of many best deputies".

A funeral for the popular deputy is scheduled for May 7, at a civic center in Bangor.
