  • Maine State Police Lt. Col. John Cote addresses the news media Thursday during a news conference at the Grange hall in Norridgewock

Somerset County Sheriff Dale Lancaster confirmed reports Williams was restrained at about 12:45, Saturday, using the handcuffs of murdered Cpl.

The Maine Department of Public Safety reported Saturday that 29-year-old John Williams is in custody.

This morning about 150 officers were searching in a wooded area where police believe Williams was cornered when a team including Federal Bureau of Investigation, game wardens and local police located him outside the cabin.

Trump finally scheduled that United Kingdom visit
Mr Johnson also made clear the President would visit London and "really wants" to meet the Queen when he made his visit. Woody Johnson said the United States president's "tough and argumentative" streak came from his heritage in Scotland.

The suspect in the killing of a Somerset County sheriff's deputy was taken into custody early Saturday afternoon with the handcuffs of the officer he's accused of shooting secured around his wrists.

Cote said a police photo showing Williams lying prone on the ground covered in dirt that had made its way around various media outlets was taken only to identify Williams. "Williams would not present his face for the photo, and the arrest team needed to facilitate the picture".

Cole's death marks the first time a ME police officer was shot and killed in the line of duty in almost 30 years. A search team of seven men surrounded a camp where Williams was spotted inside and took the fugitive by "surprise" when he exited the camp.

Lt. Col. John Cody of the Maine State Police said from the beginning of the four-day search, law enforcement believed they had contained Williams to a wooded area near Bear Mountain Road and Lost Brook.

Williams' arrest ends a phase of the crisis, but an investigation into his alleged connection continues and a criminal trial lies ahead. Eugene Cole sometime between 1 and 2 a.m. Wednesday in the town of Norridgewock, authorities said.

US Department of Commerce to accept additional evidence from ZTE
The US Department of Commerce banned US exports to the company after it found that ZTE violated an agreement. It said the probe of Huawei is similar to one that China's ZTE Corp. says is now threatening its survival .

Lancaster read aloud a statement from Cpl. "I am extremely saddened by the death of my deputy, and I can tell you those feelings are not only shared by myself but by my own deputies and all of law enforcement". Williams then drove away in Cole's marked cruiser and was later seen on surveillance camera walking inside a convenience store. "We just want you to talk to someone". Even after all you have put us through, this is all we are asking of you. "Please, please talk to us". "The weather has been hard for us".
