A man wanted on multiple charges, including homicide, has been added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Top 10 Most Wanted list.

Authorities confirmed 27-year-old Antoine Lashun Adams has been wanted in Marshall County, Mississippi by the sheriff’s office where he escaped from jail on Sunday. He was being held there in connection to a homicide in Slayden, Mississippi.

Reports stated Adams was also facing first degree murder and especially aggravated robbery charges in Shelby County, Tennessee in connection to the death of Marquis Bell in February.

Officials said Adams, who has a known gang affiliation, should be considered armed and dangerous.

Someone matching Adams’ description stole a vehicle shortly after his escape in Mississippi. The vehicle, a 2007 Chrysler 300, had a Mississippi tag number TAA-810.

Adams was described as standing 6’ tall and weighing approximately 180 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

Anyone with information on Adams’ whereabouts has been urged to contact the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND (1-800-824-3463). A reward was being offered of up to $2,500 for any information that may lead to his arrest.
