Hunt on for Mid-South murder suspect

A Mid-South man wanted for executing two men in a robbery is on the run and investigators are searching for him in Memphis.

21-year-old Jason Bobo is a wanted man in Nashville, Tennessee. He's accused of shooting two men in the head.

Bobo has two warrants out for his arrest charging him with criminal homicide for killing two Bellacino's Pizza employees in Nashville execution style.

Bobo was caught on camera shooting 33-year-old Chris Carris, and 18-year-old Joshua Cole in the back of the head Friday night in Nashville.

"People were made to lie down on the floor and were shot in th back of the head," says Shelby County Sheriff's Department Spokeman Steve Shular.

Law enforcement officials are here from to Nashville to hunt him down.

In fact, We went to Bobo's house earlier... Just as the U-S Marshals arrived to look for him...

U S Marshals left Bobo's house empty-handed. Neighbors say they don't feel safe.  "I just can't believe it," says Nancy Apple.

Apple has lived across the street from Bobo for the past year. She says Bobo was a foster child  and just moved to Nashville to go to school. She also says she remembers him being fairly friendly, even helping her move a refrigerator one time.

Apple adds, "I see this stuff happen all the time. You think you know somebody and next thing you hear this happened and you think, aren't I pretty darn naïve? I need to put my antennas up a little better."

Neighbors say they've seen police in and out of the house over the past couple years and turns out, this isn't the first time Bobo has been in trouble.

Memphis police arrested him twice before; once on a marajuana charge and again for being a minor in possession. But nothing like this.

" don't know something seriously must've snapped with that kid. I don't know," adds Apple.

If you have any information that could help police find Jason Bobo please call Crimestoppers at 901-528-CASH or the Memphis Sheriffs Fugitive Squad at 901-545-5620.
