A television news crew reportedly tipped off Georgia cops to an Arizona murder suspect who escaped at an airport, ending a multiagency manhunt that lasted nearly 16 hours.
WSB-TV general assignment reporter Matt Johnson and photojournalist Joe Booker were prepping their story late Thursday on J’Saan Carlos Strover, 20 — who sports a neck tattoo that reads “RISK” — when the murder suspect ran past their live truck and darted into some nearby bushes.
Johnson called College Park police after spotting Strover and video shows several officers taking Strover into custody.
“Bro, that’s him, get out with the camera, bro,” Johnson told Booker, video shows.
Johnson said the experience was “incredibly surreal,” adding that Strover was taken into custody about a half-mile from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, where he escaped earlier Thursday.
