Police launch manhunt after murder suspect, 20, with 'RISK' tattooed across his neck escapes while shackled at the waist and in handcuffs at Atlanta airport

 Police have launched a manhunt for a 20-year-old murder suspect after he escaped custody while in shackles at one of the busiest, largest airports in the world. 

Jssan Carlos Strover, 20, was barefoot, handcuffed in the front of his body and shackled at the waist while being escorted by two Maricopa County Sheriff's Office deputies at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia.

Officials say the two deputies removed Strover's leg restraints to walk him down stairs at a rental car facility and he then powered past them, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. 

Fulton County Sheriff Patrick Labat said: 'At the time, there were two Maricopa County deputies with him. At the point that they proceeded out, they removed the leg restraints to escort him down the steps and at that point he pushed past them.' 


Strover is wanted in Maricopa County, Arizona, on multiple charges including first-degree murder, attempt to commit first-degree murder and aggravated assault. 

He is wanted in connection with a shooting that left one man dead and another injured at a bar in Phoenix on February 19.

He was arrested by U.S Marshals in the Atlanta area on April 12 on other charges, but was in the process of being transported back to Arizona.  

Officials say Strover is 6 ft, 3 in, 150 lbs. with the word 'risk' tattooed across the front of his neck. He was last seen wearing a blue jacket, white T-shirt and black sweatpants. 


He was last seen entering the woods in the 4000 block of Global Gateway Connector, near the airport, in College Park, Georgia. 

Dozens of officers from multiple agencies were searching for Strover with dogs and helicopters Thursday.

Officials consider Strover to be dangerous despite not carrying a weapon. 

A reward up to $2,000 has been offered for his capture.
