WATCH: Police escort manhunt suspects into police station
BATON ROUGE – A large police presence slowed traffic south of LSU Friday morning as authorities searched for suspects in wooded areas.
The search was focused mostly on brush near the intersection of W. Lee and Nicholson. Authorities were using officers on foot, K9s and a helicopter.
It appears officers initially tried to stop a vehicle and the people in the vehicle fled. Three people were sought in connection with the situation and later taken into custody.
