Police arrested a man who shot and killed a 26-year-old police officer during his very first day on duty.
43-year-old Damien ‘Luke’ Anthony Ferguson was arrested for the murder of Georgia cop Dylan Harrison.
According to reports, the State of Georgia’s SWAT team took him down ‘without incident.’
The Georgia Department of Public Safety said that the suspect was arrested less than a mile from where the cop was shot.
Considered dangerous and armed, Ferguson was the subject of a statewide manhunt after the father of a 6-month-old was killed on his first day on duty.
Alamo Police Department Officer Dylan Harrison was reportedly shot outside the department’s police station on Saturday at around 1 am. He leaves behind his wife and their baby girl.
According to Fox 13, Harrison had just started his first shift for the Alamo Police Department after starting his career in law enforcement in 2018 as a full-time Oconee Drug Task Force Agent.
GBI Special Agent in Charge Lindsey Wilkes said a reward of $17,500 is being offered for information leading to Ferguson’s arrest.
Governor Brian Kemp also took to Twitter and wrote: “Early this morning, one of our law enforcement officials in Middle Georgia was killed in the line of duty.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with this officer’s family, friends, and colleagues at the Alamo Police Department. May God continue to be with all who protect and serve.”
A sheriff of nearby Telfair County, Sim Davidson, also took to Facebook to express similar condolences.
“Our sincerest thoughts, prayers, and condolences to the family, friends and co-workers of Officer Dylan Harrison who was killed in the line of duty last night in Alamo,” he wrote.
“We are sincerely grateful for his service.”
