RED DEER, Alta. - Alberta RCMP have issued a Canada-wide warrant on a first-degree murder charge for a 17-year-old Manitoba suspect.

Mounties say they're looking for Adam William Lee Bird in the shooting of a 25-year-old man in Red Deer.

The body of Lloyd Robert Sarson of no fixed address was found early New Year's Day in a vehicle in a back lane.

Police say recent information suggests Bird may be in British Columbia, but they have not ruled out the fact that he may still be in Alberta or in some other part of the country.

Police say due to the nature of the case and in the interest of public safety, they applied for a court order under the Youth Criminal Justice Act allowing the identity of the juvenile suspect to be publicized until 1 a.m. on Jan. 14. Police say after that time provisions prohibiting publication of the youth's identity once again apply.

They say Bird is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached if located.
