Shane Magan is wanted for the attempted murder of a police officer in California that took place in 1993. He is also wanted for armed robbery of a gas station after the shootout.
Magan was in a group home at the time. Only 16, he had been using drugs and running with gangs, as well as starting fights with other gang members at the home. One night, he and another man, Justin Flint, were pulled over and asked to step out when the officer noticed drug paraphernalia in the car. Magan then pulled a gun and fired at the officer, who returned fire. No one was hit. He and Flint drove off and later robbed a gas station. Flint later turned himself in, but Magan is still on the run.
Last year, AMW producers apparently received a call from someone claiming to be Magan, who also claimed to be living in Chattanooga. I guess nothing came from that, since he's still out there. He was also allegedly spotted in a gang round up 10 years ago, but was also able to escape.
Update from site admin: I could find no new articles online since theczar's original posting in 2013. As far as I can tell, Magan is still at large as of this update (7/23/2018). However, if anyone has any updates/proof-of-updates one way or the other, they are always more than welcome to let us know.
