Agencies set up a perimeter east of Highway 169, west of County Road 415, south of Highway 60 and north of County Road 23 late on Saturday in an attempt to catch the suspect. However, it is now believed the suspect made it out of the perimeter.
The suspect is Zachariah Barnes, who is wanted by multiple agencies in two states. He is wearing a black hoodie, blue jeans and has a shaved head. NPD says it has a reason to believe Barnes was bitten by a dog and may be favoring one leg, he also may have a firearm. He is considered to be armed and dangerous.
