Dylan Harrison was 26 years old when he was shot dead in front of the Alamo police.

WHEELER COUNTY, Georgia – This spring the pride and joy of Dylan Harrison’s life was born. Brody Cash Harrison certainly has his father’s smile. Now the 6 month old Brody is growing up without his birth father.

Lisa Milks called her son-in-law someone who dedicated his life to service.

“He’s been super nice to everyone, get the shirt off his back no matter what. He’s always been professional,” said Milks.

Harrison was born in Laurens County. He worked as a first responder in his hometown and also served as a firefighter in Savannah. He joined the ranks of law enforcement in 2018 and worked full-time for the Oconee Drug Task Force.

Harrison was working part-time for the Alamo Police Department on his first day when he was shot dead outside the police station at around 1am on Saturday. Harrison was 26 years old.

Harrison left behind his wife, Heather, and young son, Brody. Dylan and Heather celebrated two years of marriage in November. Milks said Heather and Dylan texted shortly before he died.

“We really tried to get him another job somewhere and couldn’t find him with a baby and everything going on,” said Milks. “He hasn’t found a job that suits him.”

A manhunt is now underway for the man believed by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to have shot Harrison. The GBI issued a blue alert for Damien Ferguson, also known as Luke. A blue alert is issued when a suspect has killed or seriously injured a police officer, has not been arrested, and poses a serious threat to the public.

Numerous law enforcement agencies from the surrounding counties are involved in the search for Ferguson. A $ 17,500 reward is available for information leading to his arrest, according to the GBI. Tips can be reported online or by calling 1-800-597-TIPS.
