Montgomery County Sheriff Ladson O'Connor died in a crash during a high speed chase last night on GA Hwy 56 near the Toombs County line.
The crash began as a traffic stop in Toombs County, but the suspect drove away, entering Montgomery County. That's when Sheriff O'Connor began pursuit. The sheriff lost control of his vehicle and was pronounced dead on scene.
The suspects, who at one point fired on deputies, were then taken into custody by Georgia State Troopers. One of the suspects, Nicole Dixie Best, was taken into custody by GA State Troopers. The other, Jim Edward Lowery, ran but was captured by SWAT team members a short time later.
Sheriff O'Connor leaves behind a wife and four children.
