Around 11 a.m., police were dispatched to the area for a home invasion and kidnapping at gunpoint. The family of the hostage followed Bowen and the victim from Reidsville to Collins. At one point, Bowen reportedly fired shots at the hostage's family. In Collins, officers intercepted the pursuit, which continued into Candler County on Interstate 16. There, Bowen fired at Georgia State Patrol, reportedly grazing a trooper's head. Bowen attempted to ram multiple officers. Police tried to immobilize the vehicle multiple times before stopping him on the side of I-16 in Bulloch County. Bowen then took the hostage at gunpoint from the vehicle over a fence on the edge of the interstate and into the backyard of a home where the hostage escaped from Bowen, and police shot and killed Bowen. During the shooting, someone in a nearby home was wounded by gunfire.

How is the comparison calculated?

The hash stored in the database is used as the identifier for this report, and can be seen in the URL. The hash from the Mainchain Tx is the hash sent to and stored on Mainchain. Finally, the "generated hash" is generated each time this page is loaded, using the same data used for the hash submitted to Mainchain.

Raw data used to generate the hash, using the Node.js crypto.createHash('sha256') algorithm:
