The fugitive who allegedly killed a sheriff’s sergeant has been captured after a days-long manhunt in Tennessee, authorities said.
Steven Wiggins, who had been on the run since the fatal shooting earlier this week, was taken into custody Friday morning, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI).
“Teamwork and diligence has paid off! Steven Wiggins is in law enforcement custody,” the TBI announced via its official Twitter account.
A law enforcement source told ABC News that Wiggins was caught after the Tennessee Highway Patrol spotted him in the woods. He was arrested without incident, the source said.
