CHICAGO (AP) — The FBI says it needs the public's help in finding a Chicago man who is on the run.

The FBI announced Tuesday it is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the apprehension of Paris Poe. He's also known as Polerowski. Poe is wanted for questioning in a federal murder investigation. An arrest warrant for Poe was filed last week in U.S. District Court in Chicago.

Poe previously has been convicted of aggravated battery and robbery. Federal authorities think he may have fled Illinois. They consider him armed and dangerous. Those with information should contact the FBI in Chicago.
