While checking on the vehicle, the GBI says the suspects walked out of a wooded area, then Spangler pulled out a handgun and fired.
Preliminary information from an autopsy shows Hearne was shot at least four times. The GBI says it is unlikely that a body armor vest would have saved her life.
Spangler and Roof fled the scene, prompting a search involving local, state, and federal agencies. Roof was caught a short time later. Spangler appeared out of the woods and was arrested around 3 p.m. Both are being held in the Polk County , GA jail.
