A fugitive accused of killing a Texas police sergeant when he fled a traffic stop has been captured and detained using the slain cop’s own handcuffs after going on the run for two days.
Tavores Henderson, 21, was taken into custody in Houston on Thursday and charged with capital murder in the death of 43-year-old Nassau Bay police Sgt. Kaila Sullivan.
Authorities released footage of Henderson being led through a jail on Thursday afternoon in the handcuffs that had previously been used by the officer he is accused of killing.
Police say Henderson was taken into custody after he surrendered without incident at a Houston-area home that belonged to one of his friends.
Authorities say a tip to Crime Stoppers of Houston had led authorities to the home where Henderson was hiding.
Henderson’s mother and her boyfriend have been charged for allegedly helping him flee authorities after the fatal incident involving the officer earlier this week.
Sullivan had been assisting in a traffic stop at an apartment complex on Tuesday night when police discovered the driver, later identified as Henderson, had an outstanding warrant for assault.
Henderson broke free from police as he was being handcuffed.
Authorities allege Henderson fled in his vehicle and struck Sullivan, running over her and dragging her body.
