Manhunt for gunman who killed ME deputy, stole cruiser and robbed store

Maine officer shot and killed responding to robbery

Early Wednesday morning, Maine State Police said Williams shot and killed Somerset County Sheriff's Deputy Cpl.

"The suspect should be considered armed and risky", a statement released by the Department of Public Safety said Wednesday morning. "The suspect then fled Cumberland Farms, driving Cpl".

Police are searching for John Williams after they say he killed Somerset County Cpl.

A man who authorities believe fatally shot a ME sheriff's deputy was due in court in MA following an arrest last month for several firearm charges.

Authorities said the suspect is John Williams, 29, who robbed a convenience store after murdering Cole.

"This is a very sad day for the Somerset County Sheriff's office, the citizens of this county, and people of the state of Maine".

As the search for Williams continues, Cote says police are already preparing for what will happen once Williams is apprehended.

Williams had been scheduled to be at Haverhill District Court in MA on Wednesday morning for a probable cause hearing related to his arrest in that state March 22 on suspicion of having a gun without a license, said Carrie Kimball-Monahan, spokeswoman for the Essex district attorney's office. Multiple units were on the scene where Cole was killed Wednesday morning, spurring several schools in Oakland, Waterville, Winslow and Norridgewock to go into lockdown, media outlets reported. "Williams is described as 5'6" and 120 Ibs, blue eyes, brown hair and is wearing a ponytail on the top of his head with the sides shaved. Why would you have to put a bullet proof vest on? "So, like I said, we all want to go home at night".

Police have released a nationwide bulletin calling for Williams' arrest.

"Eugene was one hell of a guitar player", says longtime friend Scott Bishop of Madison. The last Somserset County sheriff's deputy to die in the line of duty was Charles Baker, in a vehicle crash in 1999. It's believed to be the first killing of a law enforcement officer in ME in almost 30 years. Landry, a state police trooper, was responding to a domestic dispute call.

Maine Gov. Paul LePage tweeted about Cole's death on Wednesday.

We'll update this story as more details become available.
