CROWLEY (CBSDFW.COM) – The search continued Wednesday night in Crowley for a man wanted for murder who fled police.

Police have urged residents to stay inside behind locked doors as they look for Kristun Madewell, 40.

“Came in here and there are all these police officers all over the place and we didn’t know what happened,” said Crowley resident Mike Bransom, who normally leaves his door open.

“My door was unlocked and that things never unlocked,” he said.

Officers made sure his home was safe before the family headed inside. Teams of 4-6 officers, more than 100 all together went door-to-door.

Police said Madewell is wanted in connection to a south Fort Worth shooting that took the life of a 29-year-old on Friday.

Madewell is described as being 6’2, weighing 240 lbs.

Fort Worth undercover detectives waited for him at a home in Johnson County after receiving a tip he was there. But Madewell fled, eventually dumping his car in a rural part of Cresson… then allegedly stealing a pickup truck — equipped with GPS.

The police pursuit ended in Crowley, which is where the hunt continues with bloodhounds.

“We believe he’s in this neighborhood which is why we’ve advices residents to shelter in place,” said Fort Worth police spokeswoman Cpl. Tracey Knight.
