ATLANTA, GA. (WSFA) -

The Federal Bureau of Investigation's Atlanta Field Office is asking the public for help in identifying and locating the suspect they believe robbed two banks on December 23, 2013 in two states. One robbery left a police officer dead.

Authorities believe the suspect traveled through the state of Alabama and could be anywhere in the southeast. He is to be considered armed and extremely dangerous.

On Monday, December 23 at approximately 9:30 a.m., a man wearing a black ski mask and armed with a semi-automatic handgun entered the Bank of America, on Piedmont Road N.E., in Atlanta, Georgia, and demanded money from a bank teller.

The robber, unsuccessful in his robbery attempt, made the same demand from a customer at an ATM machine located in the vestibule of the bank. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of money from the customer, the robber fled from the bank in a light grey vehicle, possibly a Chrysler 200, with no license plate displayed.

Authorities now believe the same man committed a violent armed robbery at a Tupelo, Mississippi bank later that day that resulted in the ambush style shooting of two Tupelo Police Officers. One of the officers died as a result of the shooting.

Tupelo Police Officer Gale Stauffer was killed in the line of duty.

The robber is described as a light-skinned male of an undetermined race, wearing a black ski mask, grey/white striped long sleeve shirt, black gloves, light or grey tennis shoes/possibly Chuck Taylor Converse shoes, and a black semi-automatic handgun, possibly a Sig Sauer .45 caliber.
