Javaris Crittenton, 23, a onetime Los Angeles Lakers player wanted in an Atlanta slaying. It is alleged that he is now in California.
Authorities allege that Crittenton fatally shot Jullian Jones on August19, 2011 in the woman's driveway in Atlanta.
Crittenton had reported that he was robbed of some jewelry prior to the shooting. He might have mistaken Jones for the thief when he opened fire from his vehicle as he drive by.
Jones was struck in the leg and later died during surgery. Two men with Jones fled and were not injured, and investigators now believe one of those men was the intended target.
The FBI told the Associated Press on Sunday that it was trying to locate the former basketball player in California but would not be more specific.
Crittenton was drafted by the Lakers in 2007 but traded his rookie year.
If Crittenton is found, he is likely to be charged with murder or a lesser offense. The charge of murder is the highest crime and faces penalties that are extremely harsh.
If one is facing murder charges, an experienced and aggressive defense attorney is vital. Murder charges are treated very seriously and with high level of resources.
