ALAMO, Ga. (TCD) -- A 26-year-old part-time police officer was shot and killed outside the station during his first shift early Saturday morning.
According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, on Friday night, Officer Dylan Harrison stopped someone for a traffic violation in the Circle K parking lot across the street from the Alamo Police Department. When Harrison asked the man for his name, he refused and allegedly shoved Harrison. Harrison reportedly tried arresting the man. He ultimately had to use his Taser because the man "did not comply."
The man, who was not named, was transported to Wheeler County Jail.
Hours later, Harrison was fatally shot outside the Alamo Police Department at 1:01 a.m. The suspect, 43-year-old Damien Ferguson, was taken into custody Sunday just before 2:30 p.m. while executing a search warrant at his residence, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Ferguson was reportedly charged with murder and aggravated stalking.
