It's unclear what preceded the shooting, but Cole had been involved in the arrest of Williams' girlfriend several days earlier, and Williams was anxious about being arrested himself for failing to appear in court in MA on firearm charges the day of the shooting. A $20,000 reward had been offered for information leading to his capture, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said. The Somerset Sheriff said that his deputy was killed and his cruiser stolen by Williams who fled in the marked unit and later robbed a store.

Williams was angry about his girlfriend's arrest and had told a friend that "as of tomorrow, I'll be a fugitive".

The suspect in the killing of a Somerset County sheriff's deputy was taken into custody early Saturday afternoon with the handcuffs of the officer he's accused of shooting secured around his wrists. The Maine Department of Corrections Commissioner, Joseph Fitzpatrick, said Williams is being held in a "high custody" cell.

His capture ends a nationwide manhunt for the suspected killer of Cole, the 25th officer to be gunned down in the line of duty this year.

Cole turned the primary legislation enforcement officer in ME to be killed within the line of obligation in nearly 30 years.

Cote said teams of law enforcement officers were combing the area and were confident they had confined Williams to an area between Bear Mountain and Lost Brook, west of Route 139 in Norridgewock. "He really epitomized community policing even before there was community policing".

Williams was wanted in the fatal shooting this week of Cpl.

That camp was where teams hunting by ground and air found him.

He offered "limited resistance" when being arrested and taken to the Waterville Police Department for questioning, police said. Williams then drove away in Cole's marked cruiser and was later seen on surveillance camera walking inside a convenience store.

Lancaster says that the Cole family was his first call after finding Williams.

"Mr. Williams, be assured you'll be treated the same way Corporal Cole would have treated you if you have given him the opportunity - with dignity and respect", according to the widow's statement, ABC affiliate WCJB reported.

He was a member of the police force for 13 years and will be laid to rest on Monday at Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine. Lancaster described him an "excellent worker, one of many best deputies". His funeral is scheduled for May 7.
