The shooter, who has been identified as 29-year-old #John Williams, was initially scheduled to appear in court in MA on Wednesday, April 25, to face several gun charges.
The FBI on Thursday issued a reward of $20,000 for information leading to Williams' capture.
Officials did not say why they believe Williams shot and killed Cole early Wednesday morning, then stole his police vehicle and robbed an area convenience store before dumping the auto and fleeing on foot.
Williams was angry about his girlfriend's arrest and had told a friend that "as of tomorrow, I'll be a fugitive".
Maine State Police posted a photo of Williams on social media showing him shortly after his arrest, shirtless and with his head pulled back in order to face the camera. The Maine Department of Corrections Commissioner, Joseph Fitzpatrick, said Williams is being held in a "high custody" cell.
State and local law enforcement flooded the region this week, with a particularly massive police presence in Norridgewock, where the shooting occurred.
"I'm just glad it ended peacefully, and no one else got hurt", said Tasha Raymond, whose kids have been forced to play indoors for the past four days.
More than 200 law enforcement officers from 28 different agencies helped search for Williams.
More than 200 law enforcement officers from Maine, New Hampshire and MA were involved in the search by land and air.
