A suspect sought in connection with Wednesday’s gunshot wounding of Daytona Beach, Florida, police Officer Jayson Raynor has been apprehended following a manhunt that involved the FBI, according to reports.

Daytona Beach police Chief Jakari Young tweeted early Saturday that suspect Othal Toreyane Resheen Wallace, 29, known as “O-Zone,” had been taken into custody.

At a news conference later Saturday morning, the chief said Wallace had been captured around 2:30 a.m. Saturday while hiding in a tree house, in a wooded area in DeKalb County, Georgia, east of Atlanta.

The chief also tweeted a photo of the suspect.

Wallace had been wanted on charges of attempted first-degree murder of a law enforcement officer with a firearm, an FBI post on Twitter said Friday night.

The suspect’s Facebook page suggested he was linked to the groups NFAC Black Militia, the New Black Panther Party, and the Atlanta chapter of the Huey P. Newton Gun Club, which is named for a founder of the 1960s-era Black Panthers, the News-Journal reported.


Wallace has a long criminal history that includes aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill, trespassing, resisting an officer and driving with a suspended license, authorities have said.


On Friday, Raynor, 26, remained “fighting for his life” in a hospital after suffering a gunshot wound to his head, the News-Journal reported.
