Fikes was said to be in the Decatur area and considered to be armed and dangerous.

At approximately 4:31 p.m. on the same day, Officer Bowen, Officer Segars, and the Decatur Police Crime Suppression Unit located a pickup truck, which was said to be registered to Fikes in a parking lot in the 2000-block of Danville Park Drive.

The officers confirmed that Fikes was inside of an apartment. The officers then made contact with the owner of the apartment.
