A car theft suspect remains on the loose after a police hunt in Nob Hill late Wednesday.

Officers located a stolen vehicle at 3600 Campus NE around 9 p.m. While the officers waited for backup, the suspect took off on foot. He was believed to be armed.

Police shut down Tulane from Central to Campus while they looked for the suspect and called APD's canine and air units to assist at the scene.

After two hours and no sign of the suspect, police called off the search.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact 242-COPS.
