SAVANNAH, GA -

UPDATE:  According to the U.S. Marshals Service, Jeshavious Keel, 20, is now behind bars.  Keel, allegedly a member of the Hellhole Gang, is suspected in connection to the Coastal Empire Fair shooting of 2012.  Keel was indicted in September on numerous charges including felony murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm in the commission of crime.  Keel is the 59th suspect captured after being featured on News 3's Fugitive Files.

Tashard Orr and Jashavious Keel are both members of the Hellhole Gang, and both wanted by Savannah-Chatham Police.

"We're talking about anything from trafficking drugs to armed robbery to aggravated assault, even Murder," said Detective Udon Carter of the Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department.

Investigators say Orr and Keel were both involved with the shooting at the coastal empire fair last year. That stemmed from an argument between gang members which ended in gunfire, and with 8 people shot.

"We are really trying to get these guys from the streets," said Carter. "Due to the crimes that they have committed and the potential that they have committing more heinous crimes like that. They are habitual violators."

"They are armed and dangerous. The public needs to know they are armed and dangerous. If you see these guys do not encounter them, call Crimestoppers, your local police department and we will come right out and try to find these guys."

Jashavious Keel is 20 years old 5 foot 9 inches tall, 150 pounds.

Tashard Orr is 20 years old, 5 foot 10 inches tall 140 pounds, both are on the run, and detectives believe are still in our area.

"We don't know if they are over in South Carolina of where because Keel has ties to South Carolina and Tashard Orr we have heard of sightings," explains Carter. "That he may be in town at several locations, but we are still checking into those."

If you can help find Tashard Orr or Jashavious Keel - call Savannah-Chatham police or Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020.

Remember if your tip leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward.

"We will continue to seek you guys. We are going to find you. We have all the time in the world," said the Detective.
