Eugene Cole

Corporal Eugene Cole was shot and killed along Route 2, in Norridgewock, by a subject who was out on bond for a previous weapons charge.

The subject shot Corporal Cole and then stole his fully-marked patrol car between 1:00 am and 2:00 am. He drove the cruiser to a nearby store and robbed it, before fleeing again. He abandoned the patrol car nearby, and fled on foot. After a four-day manhunt in the area, the 29-year-old suspect was apprehended.

Corporal Cole had served with the Somerset County Sheriff's Office for 13 years. He is survived by four sons, one of whom also serves with the agency.
