As posted earlier, two police officers were shot in Americus this morning adjacent to Georgia Southwestern State University. Officer Nicholas Smarr of the Americus Police Department was killed. Georgia Southwestern Officer Jody Smith, who also served part time as an officer in Plains Georgia, was flown to Macon Georgia where he is believed to still be in critical condition.
The two were attempting to serve a felony warrant on Minguell Limberick. He remains at large. Several Law Enforcement Agencies have contributed to a reward fund for information leading to his capture and arrest, as is noted in the following press release from Randy Roberts of the Fraternal Order of Police.
The Georgia Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) has joined the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Peach County GA Sheriff’s Office, Byron Police Department and Fort Valley Police Department by adding $5000.00 to the reward for information leading to the apprehension of Minguell Lembrick for his role in the shooting of two West Georgia law enforcement officers on December 7, 2016.
The Georgia FOP contribution brings the reward up to $35,000.00.
“This individual is extremely dangerous and must be stopped from hurting other citizens and law enforcement officers,” Georgia FOP President Randy Robertson said. “We want this assassin captured and exposed to the full force of the criminal justice system.” Robertson said.
The Fraternal Order of Police represents thousands of Georgia law enforcement officers in Georgia and over 325,000 in the United States making it the largest law enforcement association in the country.
