GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Police are looking for a man wanted in connection with homicides in two North Carolina cities over three days, warning that he should be considered armed and extremely dangerous.
A news release from the Greensboro Police Department says 29-year-old Malek Anthony Moore is wanted in connection with the charge of first-degree murder in the death of 21-year-old Christian Mbimba of Nashville, Tennessee, on Sept. 3 in Greensboro. Police officers found Mbimba’s body in the street.
Moore is also wanted in connection with the charge of first-degree murder in the killing of Gabryelle Allnutt, a 29-year-old artist who traveled to Charlotte recently to escape Hurricane Ida, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say.
“Moore frankly is just a danger to the public right now,” police said.
Moore is suspected in other Charlotte crimes, including an assault on a greenway.
Police believe Moore has cut his hair and may travel frequently by rail. He is wanted on charges including murder, kidnapping, burglary, larceny, and breaking and entering.
Moore is described as being around 6’01” and 165 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He has a scar on his hand, a tattoo of three circles on his shoulder, and teardrop tattoos on his cheeks.
FBI officials say Moore may be traveling through North Carolina, South Carolina or Virginia.
“If you see him [Moore], do not approach him. Call 911 wherever you are,” police urged.
