(Jackson, MS) -- A nationwide manhunt is underway for a fugitive who shot and killed a police officer during a bank robbery in Mississippi. The unidentified suspect wounded another officer during the robbery in Tupelo on Monday. The FBI said the same suspect has been connected to another robbery earlier the same day in Atlanta, Georgia. The man is considered to be "armed and extremely dangerous" and the FBI stressed that anyone who believes they have encountered him should avoid taking any action other than to contact law enforcement.
