Houston, TX – The cop killer wanted for the murder of Nassau Bay Police Sergeant Kaila Sullivan during a traffic stop on Tuesday was captured by police early Thursday afternoon.

“Tavores Dewayne Henderson - suspect in the felony murder of Nassau Bay Police Sgt. Kaila Sullivan - has been taken into custody without incident. Deputies arrested him at a home in the 4200 block of Heritage Trail,” the Harris County Sheriff’s Office tweeted on Dec. 12.

Henderson, 21, was wanted for allegedly hitting and dragging Sgt. Sullivan, 43, with a Jeep as he was fleeing arrest on Dec. 10.

Sgt. Sullivan, a 16-year veteran-of-the-force, was pronounced dead at a local hospital a short while later.

The incident occurred in the 2000-block of San Sebastian Court at approximately 8:30 p.m., as Sgt. Sullivan, 43, and another NBPD officer were attempting to arrest a Henderson on a domestic violence warrant during a traffic stop, the Houston Chronicle reported.

But as police were handcuffing him, Henderson went on the fight and managed to get away from the officers.

He then ran back to his Jeep and floored the accelerator, slamming his vehicle into Sgt. Sullivan as he fled the scene.

Sgt. Sullivan was rushed to HCA-Houston Clear Lake Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Police later discovered the suspect’s abandoned Jeep in the parking lot of a nearby apartment complex, according to WFAA.

A massive search for Sgt. Sullivan’s killer led police to the Henderson’s mother’s home in Houston early Wednesday morning, the Houston Chronicle reported.

He was believed to be holed up inside the residence, but was not located when SWAT officers forced entry, the city said in a press release at approximately 9 a.m. on Wednesday.

Guess they will show this POS as a Cap and Gown Graduate that didn’t mean to hit the gas! Should go straight to the head of the line and save taxpayers the expenses of prolonged litigation to get life in prison.

Prayers for the Family both Blood and Blue.

It’s disgraceful how LEO’s are constantly bombarded with these loss of life tragedies.

I'm glad he's off the street, but it would have been better if he had put up a fight and been dispatched to Hell.

In a way, it's kinda sad that this pos is going to make it to trial. Would have been better if he fought back and was dispatched.

Shame he didn't resist like he did on the initial arrest. And during his trial they will show his First Holy Communion picture with a rosary draped over his praying hands and he was afraid of the white police officer. What a crock of crap.

At least the thugs with badges didn't kill him! of coarse just wait and he will some how commit suicide while in custody. probably while the guards are asleep on duty and the camera malfunctions at the right time!

"Prosecutors Thursday night also filed charges against Henderson’s mother, Tiffany Henderson, 37, and her boyfriend, Geoffrey Wheeler, 33, who are accused of helping Henderson flee authorities by picking him up near the scene of Sullivan’s death and hiding him in a hotel. His mother is also accused of lying to deputies about her son’s whereabouts. Both Tiffany Henderson and Wheeler were each charged with hindering apprehension, a felony"

That would make her about 16 when she brought that hood rat into the world!!! Thanks mom you worthless sheboon.

Now the media is reporting that she was run over because she stuck part of her body in a vehicle as it was taking off. Bad tactics, fatally so in this case. Hopefully the vid will make the training reel at the academy.

Has his Mama released her statement yet that he was on his way to church and would never hurt anyone on purpose?

People keep talking about ending the violence, but no one wants to admit that black culture is the problem. They think and act on a animal level and care nothing for the preservation of human life.

God bless, hopefully this will be a wake up call. Now we can train these officers better so they can conduct a proper arrest without either killing or being killed themselves. Hopefully all problematic cops share a similar fate to this one.

I used to repo vehicles in Winston-Salem NC and going through the projects late at night was scary af. These enormous black people hollering "Whatchoo looking at/for" while I'm slowly cruising their hood looking for someone who hasn't paid their loan.

I've got nothing against LEOs. Some are good, some are bad, deal with it.

I feel so sorry for the officers family, and nothing but contempt for her killer.
