A Somerset County's sheriff's deputy was shot and killed early Wednesday morning in Norridgewock. "Our thoughts are also with all of Maine's law enforcement community as they mourn the loss of their colleague, and we pray for their continued safety".

He also has a son David, who is also a sheriff's deputy with the Somerset County department.

Police have identified John Williams, 29, last known address in Madison, as the suspect. "He's considered armed and unsafe". Keeping low, Cole snatched the gun from the hood of a truck where the suspect had placed it, and then shot the man with his taser, ending the encounter.

A national manhunt is now underway for the suspect, with the combined assets of Somerset County Sheriff's Office along with the ME state police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the U.S. Marshals Service, in addition to various local police departments. But the clerk tells us it was later reduced to 5,000.
