TROY, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say a man wanted in Alabama and Florida on multiple charges including murder has been captured in southeast Alabama.
The U.S. Marshals Service says 39-year-old Raymond Pruitt was arrested Friday afternoon in Pike County after being sought after a crime spree that started on April 5. Authorities say Pruitt was captured after he crashed his vehicle following a high-speed chase with law enforcement.
Authorities say Pruitt allegedly stabbed his girlfriend and shot her with her own pistol.
Pruitt was initially sought by Montgomery Police on an attempted murder charge. He allegedly went on an armed robbery crime spree stretching across at least four Alabama counties.
Police say a suspect believed to be Pruitt committed an armed robbery of a Pensacola, Florida, convenience store before shooting a clerk to death.
