D.C. Authorities searched for a man over the weekend charged with first-degree murder who they say walked out of a Washington courthouse after allegedly swapping identities with another prisoner.
David Neumann, U.S. Marshals spokesman, said officials are looking for 24-year-old James Brewer, a suspect in a fatal shooting in Washington in June.
He stated police are also still looking into how Brewer escaped Friday.
D.C. Superior Court records claim that before the suspect was called before a judge, he changed identification bracelets with a criminal arrested on a drug charge.
The suspect then was released as another person charged with possession of PCP, which is only a misdemeanor.
Brewer is described as a black man, 5 feet, 9 inches tall, about 180 pounds with dreadlocks.
He, is considered armed and dangerous.
