A statewide manhunt remains underway for two men wanted in the shooting of a police officer in eastern Ohio.

Newcomerstown village police officer Bryan Eubanks was shot Tuesday morning while investigating a mobile methamphetamine lab.

The officer was shot in the chest and arm. He was wearing body armor at the time. He was taken to a local hospital where he was treated and released.

The two male suspects were last seen in a black Geo Tracker with no plates. The vehicle is blacked out with dark tinted windows. The identity of either of the suspects is unknown at this time.

A heavily tattooed man was identified as one of the suspects but that has been proven wrong. Chaz Gillilan, 28, turned himself in to Newcomerstown Police after a Blue Alert was issued. He has been cleared and is not charged with a crime, WCMH TV reports.
