DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Police say a man accused of shooting a Florida police officer in the head has been captured on a wooded property just outside of Atlanta.
Daytona Beach Police Chief Jakari Young told reporters that 29-year-old Othal Wallace was arrested early Saturday. Wallace is accused of shooting 26-year-old officer Jason Raynor after the officer approached Wallace as he sat in a vehicle Wednesday night.
The police chief says Wallace was found on property affiliated with the all-black pro-gun group called the NFAC. Raynor is still recovering in a hospital. The police chief says Raynor’s condition is showing “positive signs of improvement.”
