  • Louisiana Officers Down

    A massive manhunt, that spanned more than 24 hours, four parishes and involved scores of local and state police, is over. 37-year-old Tyrone Mack was captured in Baton Rouge Friday afternoon after police surrounded an apartment complex. He turned himself in without incident around 12:30.

    Tyrone Mack eluded police for over twenty-four hours. However, his freedom came to an end after police surrounded him and gave him no place to go.

    At 8:30 this morning the search for Tyrone Mack led police to an apartment complex in Baton Rouge. Swat teams surrounded the building after receiving an anonymous tip. Residents were evacuated and schools were on lock-down. After four hours of negotiations Mack turned himself in.

    "Our goal was that this situation ended very peacefully," said Col. Henry Whithorn a quiet end to a manhunt that began Thursday.

    After a routine traffic stop on the I-10 by state police, Mack allegedly shot the trooper and fled. He dumped his rental car right outside of Henderson, setting off an intense search on foot and by air that eventually went to Baton Rouge.

    Mack's alleged accomplice, Sidney Wright, turned himself in Thursday night. Finally Friday, police caught up with the fugitive. "I think he's satisfied and probably he's glad it's over too." Mack faces charges of attempted first degree murder. He's in the east Baton Rouge parish jail awaiting extradition to Saint Martin parish.

    Trooper first class Frank Garcia is recovering at home from a gunshot wound to the leg. The 32-year-old is a nine-year veteran of state police.

    I could not locate the story online to copy to this forum, however less than 72 hours later around 0330 hrs Sunday a Vermilion Parish Sheriff's Deputy was shot in the chest with a sawed off shotgun as he arrived on scene of a single vehicle car crash. The car crashed into the ditch. The Deputy approached the car to find the driver still in the car. After attempts to get the driver to exit the car, he brandished the shotgun and shot the Deputy in the chest. Thank God for vests! He survived and was at home from the hospital hours later. The suspect was apprehended peacefully (That sucks) several hours later hiding in a field nearby.
