LCPD initially located Hubbard last Wednesday and, when officers attempted to pull him over, the suspect refused to stop before crashing his car at the intersection of Main Boulevard and Duval Street. Hubbard fled the scene and law enforcement was unable to find him. 

Hubbard is wanted in Hillsborough County for second-degree murder.
