Posted: Updated:

The FBI needs the public's help with locating the man that attempted to rob a bank in Atlanta and shot 2 policemen following a robbery in Tupelo, Mississippi. Officer Gale Stauffer died at the scene. Another officer remains in a hospital.

Each crime happened on December 23.

Police say the suspect is between 5'8" and 6' with a slender build. He's possibly African-American  with light complexion according to the Mississippi Department of Public. He wore a facemask, a shirt or jacket with an "Aztec" pattern, khaki pants, and tennis shoes similar to the Converse brand, according to the FBI.

The suspect's vehicle is described as a gray sedan, possibly a late-model Chrysler 200.

Billboards throughout the southeast, including Alabama, will display the suspect's description in hopes of bringing him to justice.

The FBI offers a reward of up to $100,000 for information leading to the identification and arrest of the individual responsible for the crimes.

Please contact the FBI's tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI if you have any information.
