Suspect Accused of Shooting Officer Has Been Captured


After a 3-day manhunt, the suspect accused of shooting an officer during a traffic stop in Whitfield County Monday, has been captured.
Texas fugitive Dalton Lee Potter was found in a wooded area of Gordon County, after he shot and wounded a resident there.  Both shooting victims will survive.
Potter and another man were pulled over while pulling a stolen trailer which reportedly contained explosives, according to the GBI.  Both suspects are now in custody.

Authorities surrounded Potter outside the town of Resaca in northwest Georgia, where they said he shot a man earlier Wednesday.

Noah Cloer said his father Eddie Cloer fired back despite being shot in the arm and grazed in the head.

Investigators said Potter had fled into the woods after firing multiple shots Monday night at Whitfield County Sheriff’s Deputy Darrell Hackney, who was saved by his ballistic vest.
