Texas man accused of shooting a Georgia deputy was captured on Wednesday after a nearly 72-hour manhunt

29-year-old Texas man blamed for firing at a Georgia deputy on Labor Day and escaping, was caught on Wednesday following an almost 72-hour manhunt. Dalton Lee Potter was seen in Gordon County and arrested by police without episode. The manhunt for Potter started on Monday morning after he was pulled over by Whitfield County Sheriff’s Deputy Darrell Hackney while driving a trailer loaded up with explosives.

Potter, needed in Texas for robbery and burglary of over $2500, purportedly took shots at Hackney on various occasions, hitting him in his impenetrable vest, at that point drove away. The destroyed truck was found deserted close to the Whitfield/Gordon County line, however Potter, thought about outfitted and hazardous, had just fled by walking into the forest. Before appointees caught Potter on Wednesday night, not long before 11 p.m., yet not before he shot a regular citizen in Gordon County.
