The search for John Williams, suspected of shooting and killing Somerset County Sheriff's Corporal Eugene Cole, has ended.

Police have issued a nationwide alert and the Federal Bureau of Investigation is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to 29 year old John Williams.

"I am asking John Williams personally: If you are listening to my words today, I implore you to turn yourself in", Somerset County Sheriff Dale Lancaster said Thursday.

The FBI and a phalanx of state and local law enforcement agencies have joined the manhunt. Eugene Cole around 7 a.m. Wednesday. Lancaster said his office is willing to listen and encouraged him to reach out.

Upon searching the house and surrounding area, police told her they found body armor and a rifle in her vehicle, which she said was unlocked.

State Police Lt. Col. John Cote said authorities interviewed family and friends of Williams and now have a good understanding of his whereabouts and activities in the 24 hours leading up to the shooting. Cote said they are looking for people who may have had contact with him afterward, from 2:30 a.m. Wednesday on, saying they are "critically important". Williams was also there but he was not charged and was released.

Details about how Williams was found weren't immediately available.

"We requested the amount we thought was appropriate, which was $10,000", Kimball Monahan said.

Police declined to say whether he'd been apprehended, or had turned himself in.

Dashcam footage from Cole's patrol auto minutes before he was shot shows Williams entering the store (left) and emerging a minute later at 1.41am.

Williams was due in Haverhill District Court Wednesday for a probable cause hearing regarding his firearms charges.
