Police in Tchula are on a manhunt for a suspect Chief Kenneth Hampton said is considered “armed and extremely dangerous.”
Antwone Hogan of Tchula is wanted for armed robbery, aggravated assault, and shooting into an occupied dwelling.
Hampton said sometime Tuesday night, Hogan was shooting at another person and ended up hitting a home and a car. Inside that house was a 5-year-old child. The bullet casings recovered at the scene, Hampton said, were from an AR-15.
“I think I counted eight or nine bullets between the house and the car,” Hampton said. That, he said, will result in child endangerment charges.
The search currently is in the Tchula area of Holmes County, Hampton said. There have been multiple sightings of Hogan, though police towed his car Tuesday night after the shooting.
Hogan has multiple warrants, Hampton said, and is currently out on bond for a shooting-related crime. Among his warrants are charges related to fleeing police, resisting arrest, and exhibiting a weapon. Hampton said Hogan is in and out of jail often.
Hampton said he has contacted the United States Marshals Service to request assistance in the search.
“I’m hoping it’s a priority,” he said. “It’s escalating. I would consider him armed and extremely dangerous because he knows he’s not getting out once he goes back to jail.”
