Reports say the suspect identified as Patrick McDowell aged 35 was nabbed immediately after the law enforcement officers followed leads and tracked down vehicles believed to contain the man on Friday.

Patrick was alleged to have attacked the deputy Josh Moyers on Friday during a traffic stop over and he later died of his injuries on Sunday.

Police said that after a chase, McDowell was cornered in a bathroom building at the Kirsten Higginbotham Sports Complex off Ball Park Road. He eventually came out of the bathroom and surrendered.

“We got our man. It’s a great day in Nassau County,” Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper said.

When he didn’t listen to all the commands given by officers at the scene, a K-9 was sent in to get him to comply before he was arrested, Leeper said during a Tuesday afternoon news conference.

McDowell was treated for a dog bite wound and then transported to UF Health Jacksonville in a Nassau County rescue accompanied by several deputies in cruisers.

Leeper said McDowell was also suffering from two gunshot wounds following an exchange of gunfire with deputies while he was on the run. McDowell shot a K-9 with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office during the exchange, Leeper said.

“So he was injured. He had a bad wound. He was trying to reach out to people to get help. He knew if he went to the hospital we would find him,” Leeper said.
