[ARCHIVED] Manhunt for Shooting Suspect being scaled back - Efforts to Identify and Locate Continue

The manhunt for the suspect of the shooting incident that occurred on July 4 near the Canyon Point Campground in Forest Lakes, AZ will be scaled back as of this evening. The manhunt started yesterday and continued last night and through today. Law enforcement teams were unable to locate the suspect. Air and ground teams found no clues to indicate that the suspect is still in the area. The suspect had originally been a person of interest in several brush-fire starts the previous day.

The safety of citizens in the area is still a priority. Although some resources are being withdrawn and reallocated to other assignment needs, law enforcement will continue to have an enhanced presence in the area.  Local, state and federal agencies continue to cooperate in this investigation and to work together to identify and locate the suspect. Law enforcement officials will continue to assess the situation and follow up on leads and information that comes available.

The public is asked to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious activity or persons to law enforcement immediately. If you have any information about the crime or the suspect, please call the Coconino County Sheriff's Office at 1-800-338-7888 or Coconino County Silent Witness at 928-774-6111.
