A Georgia police officer was fatally shot on his first day with the local police department.
Officer Dylan Harrison, 26, was shot dead outside the police station Saturday morning in Alamo, about 124 miles west of Savannah.
Harrison’s brother, David Harrison, joined “Fox & Friends” Monday alongside his wife, Kayla Harrison, explaining that his brother was shot after a traffic stop near the police station.
“He made contact with a suspect at a gas station that happened to be across from the police station. The suspect failed to comply with him … and ended up being tased. A couple of hours went by, my brother was getting ready to do paperwork at the police station and was shot in retaliation for that arrest,” he said.
It was Harrison’s first shift working part-time with the Alamo Police Department. He was already a full-time Oconee County Drug Taskforce Agent since 2018.
The suspect, Damien “Luke” Anthony Ferguson, 43, fled the scene and was arrested Sunday at his home.
