On September 12th, shortly before noon, two Community Corrections Deputies from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office attempted to take a wanted subject into custody on Elma Av SE near Munkers St SE.  As deputies approached the suspect, he produced a handgun and fled into the residential neighborhood.  No shots were fired.
