MEIGS, GA- As the manhunt enters the third day for alleged deputy shooter Tyler Keith Henderson, the Thomas County Sheriff’s Office has doubled the reward offered for his capture and arrest.

A $10,000 reward is now being offered for information leading to Henderson’s arrest.

The 25 year old is wanted for attempting to murder 3 Thomas County deputies.

Two deputies were shot and wounded early Tuesday morning as deputies tried serving an arrest warrant upon Henderson at an Ochlocknee residence.

Henderson is considered armed and dangerous.

The focus of the search continues to be the Ochlocknee and Meigs communities.

Thomas County officials suggest if you see Tyler Keith Henderson, officials caution to not approach him but rather contact the Operations Center at 229-201-1222 or the GBI TIP Line at 1-800-597-8477.
