EDON, Ohio - Multiple police agencies continue their search for an Angola man suspected in the homicide of another man.
At a Sunday afternoon press conference, law enforcement officials Indiana and Ohio said they are searching for Zao Garth Burrell in connection with the shooting death early Sunday morning of Brent Donbroski, 40, of Angola. Police say Donbroski died of a gunshot wound to the chest.
Witnesses at the hospital with Donbroski told a Steuben County officer what happened, implicating Burrell. Steuben County police found the car that matched the description with Burrell and two other men inside. Police say a chase ensued, starting in Steuben County and ending in Williams County, Ohio. During the chase, police say one of the men in the car shot at police.
The chase ended with the other two men being caught by police, while Burrell fled. Burrell is still at-large and is thought to be armed and dangerous. Names and charges against the other two men have not been released. Multiple police agencies are scowering a three-mile radius along the Indiana-Ohio state line. A portion of Ohio State Road 20 in Williams County has been shut down.
