Steven Wiggins, accused of fatally shooting Dickinson County, Tennessee, sheriff’s Deputy Sgt. Daniel Baker, has been captured, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Friday via Twitter.

The bureau tweeted a photo of the handcuffed suspect, his shirt and jeans torn and soiled, in the back of a patrol car two days after authorities say he shot Baker to death following a 911 call reporting a suspicious vehicle in rural Middle Tennessee.

The manhunt for Wiggins, 31, began Wednesday morning along winding, treacherous terrain about 40 miles west of Nashville, authorities said.
