FBI asked to track down comic book store suspect
KENTWOOD, Mich. (WOOD) - The FBI has been asked by the Kentwood Police Department to help find Jevon Marquis Sawyer, a suspect in the shooting of a comic book store owner April 25.
Authorities believe Sawyer is in a Chicago suburb staying with relatives. Both the Kentwood PD and the Kent County prosecutors office asked the FBI to help capture Sawyer and extradite him back to Michigan. They also want help getting a federal warrant for unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.
The store owner, David Pirkola, was critically wounded in the attack. He has since been released from the hospital.
