The Atmore Police Department released a photo of Ferrell Ferna Perdue who is wanted for the murder of 19-year-old Marquetta Washington who was shot multiple times at close range Thursday night at McRae Apartments.
The photo was issued to help law enforcement agencies from Escambia County and Baldwin County locate Perdue, who fled the scene in a gray or silver Dodge Charger, but also owns a red Mustang with racing stripes. He is believed to be living with a relative on Lamar Circle in Bay Minette.
Perdue also injured 26-year-old Tony Hudson who suffered severe gunshot wounds when Perdue broke into the apartment and began firing a long-Barell shotgun, killing Washington.
Anyone who knows the location of Ferrell Perdue should contact the Atmore Police Department at 251-368-9141 or your local law enforcement agency.
