Early Wednesday morning, a suspect fatally shot Somerset County Corporal Eugene Cole and stole his patrol car, according to WCSH.
The suspect was identified as 29-year-old John Williams of Madison.
After stealing the police car, the suspect drove to Cumberland Farms on Waterville Road in Norridgewock at around 1:45 a.m., according to WCSH.
He then robbed the Cumberland Farms and fled the area on foot.
