Charlotte Mecklenburg police are asking for help finding a murder suspect who is "armed and dangerous" and traveling to motels throughout the Carolinas, according to a release.
Joseph Tyrell Abercromie, 33, is wanted in connection with the murder of Antwain Maurice Price. Charlotte authorities have obtained warrants for murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, the release said.
Charlotte police say Abercrombie knows he is wanted and is reportedly moving along interstates staying in motels throughout North Carolina and South Carolina. The investigation found Abercrombie is likely to be with Bria Anansa Shawntia Robinson, who has ties in Spartanburg, the release said.
