Gainesville, GA-A Georgia sheriff says all four suspects wanted in connection with the killing of a sheriff’s deputy have now been apprehended.
An intense search had been ongoing much of Monday until mid-afternoon, when the Hall County Sheriff’s Officer said all suspects were in custody.
Hall County Sheriff Gerald Couch said one of the four, 19-year-old Garcia Solis, is suspected of firing the shot that killed Deputy Nicolas Dixon late Sunday night in Gainesville.
Authorities said Dixon was among several deputies who tried to stop a stolen vehicle, and the four occupants got out and ran from the officers shortly before the shooting happened.
Sheriff Deputy Nicolas Dixon was killed in a shootout northeast of Atlanta. Dixon was 28-years-old and leaves behind a wife and two young children. He had been with the department for three years.
