Shooter remains at large in Wallaroo

Police are continuing their search for 25-year-old Jake Dohnt, in Wallaroo who is wanted in connection with a pursuit which occurred on Monday July 16. 

Mr Dohnt, who is known to police was spotted just before 1 am on Monday, driving a Commodore sedan on the Spencer Highway, where police attempted to pull him over. 

He refused and was last seen on East Terrace before the pursuit was terminated. 

Following in the afternoon, police located the Commodore which had been abandoned near East Terrace and Cornish Terrace. 

Patrols then spotted him in Daly Street, where he allegedly produced a handgun and pointed it at police.

An officer shot at the man, who then ran off. No police were physically injured in this altercation.  

Police believed the wanted man was in a location which was declared a dangerous area just after 2.00pm on Monday. 

That declared area (bordered by East Terrace, Cornish Terrace, Gouge Street and Ryan Street in Wallaroo), as of Tuesday morning has now been removed and replaced with a new declared dangerous area.

SEARCH: A map has been released by South Australian Police of where they are searching for the man.
