It will not be surprising if this guy is found by the drone, and then eliminated by the drone to prevent officer casualties in the face of a highly trained individual.
This will be used as the Federal Govt's rationale for deploying drones for constant surveillance. If every crime has a witness taking video from the skies, then every crime will be resolved perfectly.
However, it will soon come to the point that evidence can be manufactured to silence opposition, as just sending missiles would be too disruptive.
The implications of constant surveillance are terrifying. However, since people will be made to believe that this manhunt is more terrifying and that drones are the answer to their terror, constant surveillance will be seen as acceptable, and those who oppose it "terrorists" with "something to hide".
It's getting to the point of full blown tyranny, and they're getting the people to beg for it.
