“Shortly after night fall the aviation unit spotted Lomaneck running in a field while being chased by a K-9,” said Dale County Sheriff Wally Olson in a written press release. “Lomaneck took a position in the wood line as the aviation unit directed deputies to his location. As deputies closed in on Lomaneck gunfire was exchanged,” he said. The K-9 was killed after being struck by a bullet.
Lomaneck was taking to a hospital for treatment and will face several charges including the sex allegations that had sparked a manhunt for him last week.
Olson thanked multiple agencies who assisted in the investigation.
