Marshall police have arrested Antonio Trammel, who is accused of threatening a woman and three small children with a rifle.

Trammel was the subject of a manhunt, which began Monday night.

He also is accused of injuring a police officer.

Officers with the Marshall Police Department and the Harrison County Sheriff’s office acted on information provided by a concerned citizen and found Trammel hiding behind a house in the 600 block of West Rusk in Marshall.

Trammel was taken into custody without incident and taken to the Harrison County jail where he is currently booked in on an outstanding parole warrant issued by the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole.

Police say Trammel will be charged with at least one additional offense stemming from Monday night’s incident.

This is according to their facebook page.

He had an outstanding warrant out for his arrest before the hunt began.

In a new press release on Tuesday, Marshall PD said Trammel was threatening a woman and her three small children with a rifle. 

The search for him is continuing by Marshall police.

The officer chasing him began bleeding badly after him and Trammel crashed into a window.

Here is the full statement from Marshall PD:

Monday May 13, 2019 at approximately 6:35 pm Marshall Police Communications received a welfare check request at the Villa Charmont Apartments located at 2901 East Travis Street in Marshall. It was reported that a male subject named Antonio Trammel was at that location armed with a rifle threatening a female and her three small children. Officers arrived at the location and observed a male subject standing in front of the apartments holding what appeared to be a rifle.

The male, later identified as Antonio Trammel, had an outstanding warrant issued for his arrest out of the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole. Mr. Trammel was told that he was wanted and would be placed under arrest and he began running from the scene. As MPD patrol officers gave pursuit, Trammel and an one of the MPD officers crashed into an apartment window.

The MPD officer received multiple lacerations to his left forearm and began bleeding badly. Trammel was last observed running into the woods on the east side of Indian Springs. Responding MPD and Harrison County Sheriff’s Office units set a perimeter in an effort to contain Mr. Trammel to the wooded area bordered by East Travis, Victory Drive, Harper Drive and Indian Springs. Multiple K9 units tracked Mr. Trammel, and a DPS helicopter assisted in the search also but do to the thickly wooded area that the search focused on the search for Mr. Trammel was unsuccessful. The MPD officer who was injured was transferred to Christus Good Shepherd in Longview where he underwent emergency surgery to repair the damage to his arm. He is in good spirits and doctors are optimistic that the surgery will allow him to return to full duty when he is healed.

The Marshall Police Department would like to express its sincere thanks to the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office for their assistance, to include the multiple off-duty deputies who left voluntarily came out to assist with the search. MPD is requesting for the public’s assistance in locating Antonio Dejuan Trammel, 34 years of age.
