A 13 - year - old boy who was charged with two counts of first-degree murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon escaped from law enforcement on Tuesday after a court appearance in North Carolina , officials said.
He was in court to face two counts of first-degree murder and a charge of robbery with a dangerous weapon, the sheriff's office said. Several law enforcement agencies are looking for him, including by air with the help of helicopters, authorities said.
Authorities said they had "a high degree of concern for the safety of both the juvenile and the public" because of his "prior history of assaultive and unpredictable behavior," the state Department of Public Safety said.
Details about how the boy escaped weren't immediately released. He had made a juvenile court appearance Tuesday morning, the public safety department said. He was seen in the facility wearing leg restraints and no shoes, according to the sheriff's office.
He was wearing a white T-shirt and beige pants near the facility, at the intersection of North Carolina Highway 27 and Country Club Road in Lumberton, the sheriff's office said.
The public safety department said state law prohibits it from releasing details about the charges against Jericho because he is a juvenile. The law, however, says authorities may release the first name and last initial of certain juvenile escapees.
