Authorities tracked suspect near I-75 at Mitchell Avenue - News, Weather & Sports

Third suspect in officer-involved shooting still at large after pursuit


The third suspect in a fatal officer-involved shooting is still at large, following an active pursuit by police on Wednesday evening.

He escaped a fatal drug bust last week in Avondale, where a police officer shot and killed one suspect, Dontez O'Neal, and arrested another, Robert Mathews.

The third suspect escaped and has since been wanted by police.

Authorities were scanning the Mill Creek area, near the Kroger and Family Dollar around 9 p.m. on Wednesday looking for the suspect.

Canines were also on scene, but no arrest was made.

We will continue to update with more information as it becomes available.
