Officers said he could be driving either a cream-colored Lincoln MKZ with Kansas plates or a cream-colored Escalade with Texas plates.

News 9 was told he has a long criminal background.

The police chief in Blackwell, Oklahoma said there may have been a possible sighting at a repair shop there.

"People that decide that they want to commit these types of acts, you know they have very little regard for law enforcement," said Captain Paul Timmons with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Between this week's shootout with murder suspect Michael Vance, to this current manhunt for murder suspect Jereme Nelson, officers across the state aren't taking any chances.

"I mean they are armed and considered very dangerous so we want to make sure law enforcement in this state is aware," said Captain Timmons.

Captain Timmons said he just hopes Nelson gives up without a fight, and does not lead officers into a dangerous and deadly standoff like Michael Vance did.

"We would like to end this situation as quickly as possible without any loss of life or without anyone getting injured or killed," said Captain Timmons.

In the all-points bulletin issued on Wednesday, it reminds Oklahoma officers to be vigilant about their safety. It also stated Nelson could now be driving a 1999 black Ford Pickup truck with Kansas plates and may be accompanied by a Hispanic woman with the last name of Lopez. If you see them, call 911 immediately.
