U.S. Marshals are seeking Gregory Thornton, 30. Authorities thought they had him cornered at a Maryland apartment on April 18, but he escaped.
Thornton is wanted for the killing of Buddy Brown Jr., 13. He was found outside an apartment in Augusta, Georgia, shortly after 3 a.m. on March 28.
Police say Brown went outside to get a DoorDash delivery during the midnight hour. Brown's father fell asleep while waiting for the boy, only to receive a call hours later about his death.
Authorities think Thornton shot Brown because the teen wouldn't let Thornton inside his apartment building.
According to WRDW-TV, authorities believe Thornton fled to Maryland after allegedly shooting Brown. The FBI and U.S. Marshals tried to arrest the suspect outside Baltimore, but he hurried away in a high-speed chase.
“We have every reason to believe he’s armed and dangerous but also that he’s capable of great violence.” a statement to the Augusta TV station said.
Thornton is thought to be in the Baltimore area. He was last seen driving a black 2013 Chevrolet Camaro with a white racing stripe and a temporary tag.
Brown's relatives say a woman who may be Thornton's girlfriend is under arrest.
