FBI Involved In Search For Javaris Crittenton, At Large And Wanted For Murder

Via the Associated Press, the FBI are aiding in the search for ex-Washington Wizards guard Javaris Crittenton, wanted for the mid-August murder of a mother of four in Atlanta:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is helping police in Atlanta and Los Angeles search for a former NBA player wanted for murder.

FBI Special Agent Steve Emmett in Atlanta told The Associated Press on Sunday that the agency is involved as police look for Javaris Crittenton. Authorities say Crittenton is charged in the fatal shooting of 22-year Jullian Jones, a mother of four who was gunned down Aug. 19 in Atlanta.

Authorities do not believe Jones was the intended target, and instead Crittenton was retaliating against a man walking with Jones who Crittenton thought robbed him in April. As of Sunday afternoon, Atlanta police were reporting that Crittenton was still not in custody.
