A manhunt is currently in progress after a Vicksburg man notified Vicksburg Warren 911 that he had spotted his stolen vehicle on Highway 61 South near Demby Drive just after 3 p.m. Saturday.
The 2007 Chevrolet Yukon was reported stolen earlier this week. Vicksburg Police Officer Leonce Young got behind the vehicle on Belva Drive and a brief chase ensued.
The vehicle attempted to elude officers by turning into Warrenton Independent Baptist Church where they struck the church van and subsequently crashed into a tree.
Three individuals fled on foot. One has been taken into custody. Two others remain on the loose in the area. Numerous law enforcement officers are searching in the area and a K-9 unit is en route.
The two individuals are described as young black males dressed in all black. No other information is available at this writing.
