The man in the surveillance images has since been driven to Hagerstown, Maryland by an Uber driver, state police said.
Police said to call 911 if they see Manfredonia, who is considered armed and dangerous. Manfredonia, a senior at the University of Connecticut, is accused of assaulting two men, killing one, in Willington, Connecticut on Friday morning.
Police say he then committed a home invasion and held someone captive, then fled with stolen pistols, guns and a vehicle, which he used to drive to Derby, Connecticut.
In Derby, he went to an acquaintance's house and allegedly killed the 23-year-old man, before forcing the man's girlfriend into her car and fleeing the state with her. The woman, 23, was located Sunday with her vehicle at a rest stop in New Jersey, near the Pennsylvania border. She was not hurt, police say.
