"The suspect then fled Cumberland Farms, driving Cpl".

The Morning Sentinel reports that a Somerset County sheriff's deputy has been shot and killed at the scene.

"The suspect should be considered armed and unsafe", a statement released by the Department of Public Safety said Wednesday morning.

Residents in Norridgewock, a town of about 3,500 huddled in the rain, as state police cruisers and federal agents investigated a blue-grey home believed to where Williams lived with his girlfriend.

Deputy Chief John Cote of the Maine State Police says Williams is considered armed and risky, "If people encounter him, they should not approach him, they should call 911".

Williams has a criminal record.

A judge gave Williams $7,500 bail, which was lowered by a Superior Court judge to $5,000.

As the search for Williams continues, Cote says police are already preparing for what will happen once Williams is apprehended. When state police stopped at the site of the accident, Williams had "droopy eyelids, slurred speech and bloodshot, glassy eyes", according to a police report.

"He was one of many best deputies that you'd wish to meet", Lancaster advised reporters at a information convention. A portion of Route 2 has been shut down while police deal with the situation.

Williams was arrested after he drove into a ditch off Interstate 495 just before 4 a.m. on March 22.

Cole has a son who also is a Somerset County deputy. Eugene Cole, as well as four still shots taken during the alleged robbery of a convenience store following the shooting. The last Somserset County sheriff's deputy to die in the line of duty was Charles Baker, in a vehicle crash in 1999.
