robot that entered the bathroom. he was not inside. police recovered at least four weapons, including a rifle found under a dumpster near the gas station but say video from that gas station showed that allman was still armed. >> something happened that would make someone do this kind of thing. i just pray to god that they'll find him and he doesn't hurt anybody else. >> reporter: in addition to warning residents here to lock their doors and keep their windows closed, the sheriff's department is asking people to call in tips to help locate this suspect. in just 90 seconds, a desperate plea. >> please turn yourself in. >> before he was wanted for murder, sharif launched his tv career. tonight, one of the women closest to him speaks out. >> the one thing that made this man late for work at the cement
