WANTED DEAD OR ALIVE TAMPA COP KILLER DONTAE RASHAWN MORRIS aka QWALO $100,000 REWARD FOR INFORMATION TO HIS WHEREABOUTS.
Police vow intense search for cop-killer Dontae Morris. TAMPA — An intense manhunt closed its second day Wednesday with a bristling show of force but no arrest of the man wanted in the slayings of two Tampa police officers.
Late Wednesday afternoon, scores of officers with assault rifles, police dogs and an armored assault vehicle ringed an apartment complex on N 43rd Street. The law enforcement turnout included police, sheriff's deputies, FBI agents, even the Border Patrol.
But after nearly three hours, officers left without finding 24-year-old Dontae Rashawn Morris, the man suspected of shooting officers David Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab early Tuesday.
Tampa police Chief Jane Castor said the authorities had responded to what was believed to be a reliable tip that Morris had been seen at the Kenneth Court Apartments. The slayings and the search have left police drained but determined, she said.
"They're just heartbroken, there's no other way around that, but we're professionals and we're going to do what it takes to place this cop killer in custody," she said. "However long it takes … we're going to keep up this effort and this intensity until Dontae Morris is under arrest."
Castor said police think Morris is still in the Tampa Bay area and has had help eluding police. "With the amount of pressure that we have out in the community right now, that he can stay underground this long is very surprising to me," Castor said. "It indicates to me that he's had assistance on more than one level."
As authorities increased the reward for Morris to $100,000, hundreds of law enforcement officers from local, state and federal agencies pitched in to help, MORE FROM THIS SOURCE......
