In the United States, New York City police are looking for a murder suspect who was mistakenly released from prison on Monday, March 8.

Christopher Buggs, 26, is reportedly awaiting trial at Rikers Island Prison for murder in the 2018 Brooklyn shooting.

The Joint Fugitive Task Force, made up of NYPD officers and US marshals, is now trying to track him down.

“We are aware of this incident and a full investigation into how it happened … Right now, we are working with our law enforcement partners to bring this person back into custody,” Peter Thorne, the Deputy Commissioner for Public Information of the Department of Corrections said in a statement.

According to the information, all police officers in New York received a photo of the wanted person, which indicated that he could be armed and dangerous.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said Buggs was sentenced to 30 days in prison for serving time in another case, and because of this confusion, he was accidentally released.

“This is being fully investigated. We are going to take additional precautions to ensure that this never happens again,” de Blasio said.

“It was based on a court order, but it was apparently one case that this inmate had connected to him, but there were other charges obviously as well that should’ve meant he remained incarcerated. So we’re going to get a full review of this immediately, make whatever changes we have to. In the meantime, we have a high level of confidence that he will be re-apprehended shortly.”

Surrounding jurisdictions have already been notified as well.

Buggs heigt is 5.5 feet and 160 pounds.

If you see him, do not approach him; call police.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts has been requested to inform the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). You can also submit a tip via their website or on Twitter, @NYPDTips. All calls are kept confidential.
