JACKSON, Miss. - Mississippi authorities have launched a nationwide search for a man wanted for murder and aggravated assault.

Mississippi Bureau of Investigation spokesman Warren Strain says the suspect, 28-year-old Alex Bridges Deaton, is the boyfriend of 30-year-old Heather Robinson, who was found dead at the Vineyards Apartments. Her car, a white 2012 GMC Arcadia sports utility vehicle, was missing.

He also is a suspect in the shooting of a woman as she jogged early Friday morning in Rankin County. The woman says a white man with facial hair, driving a small white SUV shot her from his driver's window.

Anyone with information on Deaton's whereabouts should contact CrimeStoppers, which is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to his arrest.
