TUPELO, Miss., Dec. 28 (UPI) -- FBI agents are searching for a man accused of robbing a bank in Mississippi, killing a police officer, and being involved in an attempted robbery in Atlanta.

Authorities say the suspect robbed a bank in Tupelo, Miss., which led to a gunfight with police, in which the suspect shot at two officers, killing one of them, CNN reported.

The suspect is believed to be responsible for a failed robbery at a bank in Atlanta several hours later. When that robbery failed, the suspect allegedly robbed a customer at the bank's ATM, the Atlanta FBI office said Friday.

More than 100 FBI agents were searching for the suspect.
