Police in Knoxville, Tennessee, are asking for Metro Detroiters' help locating a suspect in an August murder who hailed originally from Detroit.

In a release sent late Wednesday night, Knoxville police identified Jaleen Genard Allen, 23, as the suspect in an Aug. 29 shooting that left a 28-year-old man named Michael Johnson dead. A first-degree murder warrant has been issued for Allen.
