Police release suspect detained in Calif. manhuntOfficers release suspect detained in manhunt that shut down Calif. freeway for 6 hours
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) ' Police have released a man they detained after a manhunt that shut down one of Northern California's busiest freeways for six hours.
Sacramento County sheriff's spokesman Jason Ramos says the armed carjacker who stole two trucks and a tractor Friday morning remains at large.
The gunman seemed to disappear around noon after abandoning his most recently hijacked vehicle, a brown truck.
Around 1 p.m., police detained a man a witness believed was sitting in the brown truck after it was stolen.
But by late afternoon, officers had released the man, saying the witness may have been mistaken.
