(WTVM) -

Federal authorities are on a massive manhunt across the Southeast searching for a man they believe robbed two banks in two different states, leaving one person dead on Dec. 23.

The first bank robbery occurred at around 9:30 a.m. at the Bank of America located at 2625 Piedmont Rd. NE in Atlanta. Officials say a lone male wearing a black ski mask and armed with a semi-automatic handgun attempted to demand money from a bank teller, but was unsuccessful. The suspect then robbed a customer at the ATM, and was seen driving away in a light grey vehicle with no license plate displayed.

The same day, a second bank robbery occurred in Tupelo, Miss. Authorities say they believe the same suspect traveled through Alabama to the second location, and robbed both banks. The Tupelo robbery involved a shooting that killed one police officer, and left another officer critically injured.

The suspect is considered armed and extremely dangerous. He is described to be around 5'8" to 6'0" with slender build.   

Authorities are offering a reward with a combined total of $200,000 for his capture. Anyone with information regarding this matter should immediately contact the FBI at 1-800-CALL-FBI (1-800-225-5324).
