Suspected cop killer Damien Anthony “Luke” Ferguson has been arrested less than a mile from where authorities believe he shot and killed Alamo police officer Dylan Harrison early Saturday morning.
A Facebook post by the McRae-Helena Police Department states that Harrison was ambushed early Saturday morning when he was killed. He leaves behind a wife and six-month-old child.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Harrison, a full-time officer with the Oconee Drug Task Force, was working his first shift with the Alamo Police Department when he was killed. A convicted felon who, according to the Georgia Department of Corrections, last spent time in Coffee Correctional Facility is wanted in connection with the Oct. 9 killing of Alamo Police Department officer Dylan Harrison.
Georgia Department of Corrections records show that Ferguson was convicted of a 1998 aggravated assault on a police officer and theft by taking incident that took place in Wheeler County. He was sentenced to eight years in prison and released from Coffee Correctional Facility in 2006.
A $17,500 reward had been offered for information leading to Ferguson’s arrest. Sunday, authorities increased the reward to $18,500.
