A manhunt is underway near the airport in Atlanta after a murder suspect escaped authorities as they were attempting to extradite him back to Arizona.
The suspect, J’Saan Strover, 20, was able to run from deputies and flee — barefoot and shackled — into a wooded area.
What are the details?
WGCL-TV reported that “police said Strover was handcuffed and in waist chains when deputies undid his ankle cuffs so they could lead him down a set of stairs,” adding that “at that time he pushed past the deputies and made a break, running across the street and escaping into the woodline.”
Multiple law enforcement agencies are now involved in the search for Strover, who is described as 6-foot-3, 150 pounds with a neck tattoo that reads, “Risk.” At the time of his escape, he was wearing a white T-shirt, navy blue jacket, black sweatpants and was not wearing shoes.
It is unclear when Strover arrived in Atlanta.
