He's probably scared to death about at least two things: 1) A cop has just been killed (DEA, no less), which means a huge manhunt and investigation using federal, state, and local law enforcement resources. He knows that he is at least tied to some criminal activity that can and probably will be uncovered during the massive investigation, so he's toast from a legal perspective; and 2) he knows about Jack and his crew, and he knows from Walt that they killed Hank and Gomez, and that from Jack's perspective, Saul is a loose end.
Best course of action? Get the hell out of dodge. Saul may be ethically challenged and a crook, but he's no dummy.
