GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — The Gadsden County Sheriff's office has issued a correction after erroneously reporting that two of three men involved in a Midway manhunt turned themselves in.

The sheriff's office reported that two of the three suspects turned themselves into the Gadsden County Jail on Wednesday. Thursday morning, officials recanted that statement, saying that none of the suspects have been apprehended and are still at large.

The manhunt officially ended at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday and the suspects were identified as Hernando Gibson Jr., Torrail Jones, and Michael Winbush.

GCSO said the three suspects led Quincy Police on a chase to Midway after a burglary in progress. During the chase, the suspects bailed out of their car and ran into a wooded area off of Palmer Road in Midway. The City of Midway Police Department reported the suspects hit a patrol car prior to wrecking and bailing out of their car.

Deputies said the suspects should be considered armed and dangerous.

Nine agencies assisted in the five-hour search that ended with the arrest of a person of interest wanted on felony warrants.

According to GCSO, Midway Police is now doing a criminal investigation for aggravated assault on the suspects for intentionally ramming a Midway PD vehicle and felony charges for the pursuit. Quincy Police will be issuing criminal charges for burglary of dwelling, fleeing and eluding, and grand theft.

The investigation is still ongoing and if anyone has information in the whereabouts of the suspects please call the Gadsden County Sheriff’s Office at 850-627-9233 or the Quincy Police Department at 850-627-7111.
