Suspect in Fort Worth slayings will not be taken alive
FORT WORTH — An 18-year-old suspect wanted in the recent fatal shootings of two men may be carrying several guns and has indicated that he will shoot any officer who tries to stop him, Fort Worth police officials said Tuesday.
Police are asking anyone with information on the whereabouts of Rashad Elay Glenn to contact authorities.
«He is considered armed and dangerous and has stated that he will not be taken alive,» the department stated in a news release issued Tuesday morning.
Glenn is wanted on a capital murder warrant in the Aug. 21 shooting of Charles E. Govan and Richard L. Hawkins.
Police have said Govan, 21, and Hawkins, 20, were in a vehicle stopped in the 4400 block of Emerson Street near Hatcher Street when a car pulled up and a passenger got out and opened fire.
Govan, a passenger, died at the scene. Hawkins, the driver, died shortly afterward at a Fort Worth hospital.
Tarrant County court records show that Glenn is also wanted on warrants alleging aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and bail jumping.
The aggravated-assault charge stems from an Oct. 2 incident in which Glenn is accused of shooting a 20-year-old man in the parking lot of an east Fort Worth apartment complex.
Glenn was to go on trial in that case in June but failed to appear, prompting the warrant. As a result, he was also indicted that month on a charge of bail jumping.
He is described as black, 5 feet 5 inches, 150 pounds with brown eyes and black hair. He has numerous tattoos, including «Texas» on one of his biceps and «Eastwood» across his upper chest.
He may carry four or five guns on him at all times, authorities say.
