⚠️MAN HUNT⚠️— Chilton Co. Sheriff (@ccsosheriffAL) June 29, 2018
We are conducting a man hunt in the area of I65, near the Shelby County line. Traffic will be stopped at times to allow the dog team to cross safely. Please be patient. More details to come!
A massive law enforcement presence is happening off I-65 at the Shelby/Chilton county line.
Sheriff John Shearon says K/9 officers have been brought to the scene to find two men suspected of throwing rocks off the County Road 51 overpass.
Shearon says when deputies responded to the call by a driver whose vehicle was struck, one suspect took off in a truck. Two more suspects ran into the woods while shooting at the officers.
The Bibb Co Sheriff's Office dog team has been brought in to search vehicles traveling on I-65. Traffic is being stopped periodically and drivers are urged to take another route.
