One wanted, two men detained in Vicksburg manhunt

VICKSBURG, Miss. (WLBT) - Two men have been detained for questioning Thursday after they ran away from officers on Wednesday according to Vicksburg police.

Police were able to identify two of the men as, 22-year-old Quinterrious Vincent McCoy and 23-year-old Ricky Dewayne Larkins Jr. They were found hiding in a breezeway of the Relax Inn hotel.
