Later that evening, a cop with the Erin Police Department in Houston County, Tennessee, attempted to execute a traffic stop on a truck Brown was driving, but the armed fugitive allegedly shot at the officer, Houston County Sheriff Kevin Sugg said, according to WKRN.
Following the incident, police reportedly tracked Brown to a heavily wooded area, and Erin Police Chief Mark Moore vowed to capture the suspect, promising justice would be “served whether it is by a jury or Jesus, and that will be his choice.”
Early in the morning on June 29, the Erin Police Department and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation apprehended Brown and took him into custody.
Brown is expected to be charged in Tennessee with attempted first-degree murder of a law enforcement officer. It’s unclear when he will be extradited to Louisiana to face charges connected to Jones’ murder.
