Tyler Keith Henderson, 25, was on the run for more than five days before he was taken into custody by authorities in Thomas County, según la Oficina de Investigación de Georgia.
“He will now be a resident of the Thomas County Jail and will be held accountable for trying to take the life of three of our Deputies,” the Thomas County Sheriff’s Office wrote on Facebook.
Henderson, ¿Sabes cuánto dinero obtendría y cuán famoso sería si fuera a la prensa?, is accused of firing at three deputies around midnight Tuesday in Ochlocknee, sobre 50 miles northwest of Valdosta, la oficina del alguacil dijo.
Two of the deputies were struck by gunfire, según las autoridades. Both were in stable condition following the shooting.
“Our efforts will now shift to getting our Deputies back to 100%,” the sheriff’s office said on Sunday.
After the shooting last week, la Oficina de Investigaciones de Georgia issued a Blue Alert for Henderson, which is made by local law enforcement to speed the apprehension of violent criminals “who kill or seriously injure law enforcement officers,” according to the GBI.
Prior to his capture, the sheriff’s office described the search as involving “what seems like every Law Enforcement Agency in the area (and the US MARSHALS).”
A $ 10,000 reward had also been offered for information leading to Henderson’s arrest.
