Alabama: Statewide Manhunt for Murder Suspect
US officials are searching for the whereabouts of 19-year-old fugitive, Kayne Chakeith McTier.
McTier is described as a black male, about 5'9" and 150 pounds.
Previous reporting from the Montgomery Advertiser revealed that in 2020, McTier was accused of throwing a man to the ground and robbing him at gunpoint.
Although he was only 16 at the time, McTier was tried as an adult.
As of Tuesday morning, the Montgomery Police Department has issued an active warrant to McTier for reckless murder. Elmore Autauga News reported that McTier has "friends and family in the Montgomery area."
News Channel 9 reported that U.S. Marshals Gulf Coast Regional Task Force is hunting for McTier across the state. The U.S. Marshals Service says that citizens should consider him violent and dangerous.
Anyone who spots McTier should not approach or interact with him, but should instead call 911 or the police immediately.
Additionally, News Channel 9 reports that the community program CrimeStoppers is offering a $1,000 cash reward for information about McTier's whereabouts. If you have information that could help law enforcement detain McTier, call 334-215-STOP (7867).

There currently have been no details released about the events leading to the reckless murder warrant.
