Local law enforcement officers searched in Atmore on Tuesday, for two suspects wanted for murder in Escambia County, Fla.

Escambia County Chief Deputy Mike Lambert said that law enforcement received a tip that the suspects might be at the Patterson Street apartments.

However, deputies and officers searched the apartments late Tuesday morning and found nothing, Lambert said.

The wanted suspects are Jesse Dontase Square, 28, and Jeremiah Isiah Farrish, 23, both of Pensacola, Fla.

The fatal shooting reportedly took place Saturday morning at a Lakeview Avenue home in Pensacola.
Farrish later turned himself in Tuesday at the Escambia County (Fla.) Sheriff’s Office, Lambert said.

Multiple agencies participated in Tuesday morning’s search, including the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office and the Atmore Police Department.

Square is described as a 5-foot-8, 217-pound black man. As of Tuesday afternoon, he was still on the run and considered armed and dangerous.

If anyone has any knowledge of Square’s whereabouts, call the Escambia County (Fla.) Sheriff’s Office at (850) 436-9620.

Deputies and officers wore bullet-proof vests and were armed during Tuesday's search.
