Jackson County law enforcement officials remain on the lookout for the suspect in the killing of one Athens policeman and the critical shooting of a second policeman.
The suspect, Jamie Hood of Winterville, allegedly shot and killed APD officer Elmer "Buddy" Christian and injured officer Tony Howard as the two searched for a suspect in an alleged kidnapping and carjacking that had occurred earlier in the day.
The shooting took place between Alps Drive and the Oconee River on the Atlanta Highway around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Hood's car was reportedly found Tuesday night in Clarke County.
