The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is assisting The Arizona Department of Public Safety as well as other local agencies in the search for a homicide suspect from an incident in the Prescott area, said YCSO public information officer Dwight D’Evelyn

"The search area is currently in a remote area north-east of Rimrock in the Montezuma Well area," he said.

D'Evelyn said the suspect is described as a white male, six feet tall and is wearing a black or blue shirt, black shorts and possibly black gloves.

The suspect is "armed and dangerous," D'Evelyn said.

"For residents/motorists in the area, please do not approach the suspect," he said. "Do not pick up hitchhikers ... call 911 if you see the suspect."
