4:04 pm
man out of the carry, officers stopped him with guns drawn. >> they handcuffed me and had me on the cold concrete about five minutes and let me up and took handcuffs off. >> and that is just one example of how intense it is out here, police do continue this manhunt. as for shareef allman police say he's a good guy, but one man inside yesterday told reporters he didn't seem right when he came to work. that employee did not show his face. >> yesterday, won't look at us as we went by or were anywhere in his vicinity. got to wondering what is going on with him. at lunchtime it was kind of the talk of the lunch. what is wrong with him? and then, today this, happened. >> reporter: that is the question at this time. the map hunt continues.
