Police have identified a suspect in connection with the shooting death of an Alabama sheriff at a gas station.

An 18-year-old suspect is now in custody after an Alabama sheriff was shot and killed in the line of duty while answering a call to a convenience store.

Lowndes County Sheriff "Big John" Williams was responding to a call at a Hayneville gas station when he was fatally shot, Sgt. Steve Jarrett said.

After the manhunt, William Chase Johnson returned to the crime scene and surrendered while in possession of a gun, authorities said.

"He will be remembered as a consummate professional and pillar of his community", Ivey wrote of the sheriff, who was born and raised in Lowndes County.

It was unclear what, if any, role race played in the shooting.

Meanwhile Sunday, amid messages of condolence from law enforcement agencies, members of the public responded with prayers and well wishes for the sheriff's family. Lowndes County is a county in the State of Alabama.

"If any of you know "Big John" Williams he was a wonderful man, everybody in law enforcement knew him". "Through his service to our country in the United States Marine Corps and his many years working in law enforcement, he dedicated his life to keeping other people safe".

WIlliams, who was known as "Big John" and was sheriff since 2010, had gone to the store when the owner said there was a crowd hanging out in the parking lot and he wanted them dispersed.

Williams' career in law enforcement began in 1978, when he first volunteered as a reserve deputy. He was a deputy from 1987-90 until Sheriff John Hulett promoted him to chief deputy. He loved Lowndes County, " said Cunningham to ABC News' Montgomery, Alabama, affiliate, WNCF. It had a population of around 11,000 in the 2010 census.

Williams always had "kind words for everyone", the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office said. At the time, the county commission president said all five commissioners and other elected officials had recommended Williams for the position.

According to AL, Williams was also known as the officer that arrested Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, formerly known as H Rap Brown during his time as a leader in the Black Power Movement of the 1960s, in 2000.

Details surrounding the fatal shooting were still murky as of early Monday.
