Ohio Man Arrested in 'Targeted' Killing of Police Officer
A suspect has been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of an Ohio police officer.
That suspect, Herschel Ray Jones, has a criminal history dating as far back as 2001, FoxNews.com reported.
His ex-girlfriend had alerted police last night that Jones was dangerous and may have been looking to harm a police officer.
The sheriff’s office then tried to make contact with Officer Thomas Cottrell, launching a search when he didn’t respond, Happening Now reported.
Officer Cottrell’s body was discovered about 20 minutes after the 911 call.
The police officer was found in the woods behind a municipal building north of Columbus, Ohio. His service weapon and police cruiser had both been taken.
