The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office in central Texas said that it used a thermal imaging drone to help capture a suspect that sheriff’s deputies said was carrying narcotics and had fired on another law enforcement officer earlier this month.

In the early morning of Jan. 5, police from Georgetown were chasing 22-year-old Malik Anthony Rashan Jackovich when Jackovich ditched his car near the San Gabriel River and ran under a bridge, law enforcement officials said. Jackovich fired at police, who called for aid from Williamson County Sheriff’s Department.
