Police have secured an arrest warrant for a man accused in the fatal shooting of a Yale graduate student.
Qinxuan Pan was originally identified as a "person of interest" in the Feb. 6 killing of Kevin Jiang.
Police had said the 29-year-old Massachusetts man stole a car on the day of Jiang's death.
New Haven police now have an arrest warrant for Pan with a $5 million bond.
Pan is described as a 6-foot-tall Asian male with short black hair. Police said previously he could be staying with family in Georgia.
He had previously been charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, as well as interstate vehicle theft.
U.S. marshals told News 12 that they, along with New Haven police, are working diligently to locate Pan.
Police have said they are looking into whether Jiang, a student at Yale’s School of the Environment who recently got engaged to be married, was killed in a road rage incident following a car crash.
Pan’s last known address is in Malden, Massachusetts, and he graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
