BOSSIER CITY, La. (KSLA) - Two men are in custody following a manhunt involving at least a dozen Shreveport Police units.

The incident occurred around 1 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 2. Shreveport Police attempted to stop a reportedly stolen vehicle near Kings Highway. The driver continued on to Barrett and eventually stopped. Three male suspects then left the vehicle and tried to run away. Shreveport police say the vehicle was reported stolen out of Bossier City and had its license plates replaced.

Shreveport Police then led a manhunt for the men. Two were found and arrested near a partially levelled apartment complex at Barrett and Wilkinson. Police also believe they have the third suspect trapped in a perimeter a few blocks away.
