Damien Ferguson, 43, was taken into custody without incident a day after the shooting death of Officer Dylan Harrison. He has been charged with murder in connection to the shooting and aggravated stalking for a separate domestic incident, according to the OBI. Ferguson is also known as Luke Ferguson, the BIG said.
“Today, shortly before 2:30 p.m. Damien Anthony Ferguson was taken into custody during the execution of a search warrant at his residence in Alamo, GA,” said BIG spokesperson Natalie Ammo’s.
“Intel provided by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the United States Marshals Service was instrumental in capturing Ferguson,” the post read.
Harrison, 26, was working his first department shift when he was fatally shot outside the Alamo Police Department in Wheeler County early Saturday morning. He leaves behind a wife and a 6-month-old child.
Harrison was attacked “ambush-style” outside the Alamo Police Department after a known associate of Damien Ferguson got into an altercation with Harrison. The unnamed man was sated and ultimately arrested, the BI statement said.
“His life was taken from him for simply doing his job,” said Alamo Police Chief Karen Sander. “We will never forget Officer Harrison and the fact that he made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure the safety of each one of us.”
