    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Little Rock police have released more information on the teen who led police on a manhunt Tuesday.

    Sgt. Cassandra Davis said the teen's name is Demontae Berry. The 16-year-old is charged as an adult with attempted murder and aggravated robbery.

    Charges stem from an incident at Shark's located at 3323 Fair Park Blvd. on Nov. 25, 2013. Davis released the police report where it states a man was shot and robbed outside of the business. Officers found him unresponsive in his car.

    Lt. Sidney Allen told THV 11 Tuesday that Berry ran from Hall High School after a school resource officer pulled him from class, handcuffed him, and waited for detectives to arrive that afternoon. Allen said the teen maneuvered the handcuffs and ran from the school.

    This led to officers searching the area of Evergreen Drive and Cleveland Street near University Avenue as well as going door-to-door looking for the teen.

    Pam Smith with Little Rock School District said Hall High School and Forest Heights Middle School were both put on lockdown due to the manhunt.

    Berry surrendered to police Wednesday morning.  

    According to the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office website, Berry is charged with attempted murder, aggravated robbery, theft of property, and third degree escape. He is being held on $50,000 bond.
