FAIRFIELD, Ala. (AP) - A Birmingham teen has been charged with capital murder in the shooting death of a Fairfield man killed when he tracked his stolen iPhone.

Fairfield police Chief Leon Davis tells local media that 19-year-old Jamil Deandre Eatmon is being sought for the Sunday night slaying of 33-year-old Jarvaris James. Eatmon remains at large, and Davis says he is considered armed and extremely dangerous.

The shooting occurred outside a church near Miles College. The college was put on lockdown as a precaution, but no students were involved or hurt.

Investigators say James was shot after he used an app to track his iPhone, which had been stolen. Davis says Eatmon and James knew each other.

Eatmon fled the scene in a gold 2015 or 2016 Nissan Maxima with chrome accents.
