A murder suspect is on the loose.

Officials are looking for a murder suspect from Arizona who escaped custody at the Atlanta airport on Thursday morning.

According to Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, 20-year-old Jssan Carlos Strover escaped from Arizona deputies who were transporting him in the area.

Strover was reportedly last seen entering the wood line 4285 Global Gateway Connector, which is west of the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Officials say he escaped from Maricopa County deputies near the rental car area.

He was last wearing a white t-shirt, black sweat pants, and a navy blue jacket. He was handcuffed at this time.

Stover is 6 feet, 3 inches tall, and 150 pounds. He has a tattoo on the front of his neck that says “Risk.”

Stover is wanted in connection with a murder in Phoenix. Fulton County says his charges are first-degree murder, attempt to commit first-degree murder, and aggravated assault.

Anyone with this information on his whereabouts is asked to contact 911. He is considered dangerous and should not be approached.
