Atmore police and officers from several state and federal agencies continued this week their search for 31-year-old Atmore resident Rayvon Desha Madison.
Madison is wanted on warrants charging him with attempted murder and “numerous other charges” related to a domestic incident that occurred just after midnight on June 20 and included shots being fired. Police have not revealed from what type of weapon the shots were fired.
APD Sgt. Darrell McMann said Madison had been “stalking his ex-girlfriend” prior to the date of the incident. He reportedly broke into the woman’s residence and fired a shot at her, then chased her down the street.
Police Chief Chuck Brooks said last Friday (July 1) that the multi-level posse was following up on some leads and hoped to have Madison in custody soon.
“He is still at large,” Brooks said. “We have multiple state and federal agencies assisting in his location and apprehension.”
City police, county deputies, state troopers and the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Squad are reportedly part of team searching for Madison.
Escambia County Detention Center records show that the suspect has a lengthy record of incarceration, mostly on charges related to domestic violence, disorderly conduct or failure to appear in court.
Police say Madison should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached. Anyone who sees him or has information that could lead to his arrest is urged to call 911.
