Crimestoppers of Tri-Cities need your help in finding a man wanted for murder. Merle W. Harvey is 24 years old. He's about 5'10", 160 lbs with brown hair and blue eyes. Harvey has a tattoo of a pit bull or bulldog on his forearms.

He's accused of shooting two men in Spokane on Sept. 26th. Police believe the shooting started with a car deal. Another suspect has been arrested but Harvey is still on the run.

He was featured on Washington's Most Wanted list. A tip on Oct. 2nd led police to believe he was in Pasco. He used to live in Richland. Harvey may be with a woman named Diane Richardson. Richardson is a "person of interest" in the case, and is accused of helping Harvey run from law enforcement.
