HOOVER, AL -

While the manhunt continues for a man accused of murdering his pregnant wife this weekend, the victim's family is reaching out for help in finding him.

Saturday, Hoover Police received a domestic violence call of a woman being assaulted by her husband. When they arrived on the scene, they found 29-year-old Rashon Epps lying in the parketing lot suffering from a gunshot wound.

Her husband, Brian Epps, has been charged with capital murder in the case. Witness tell police that the husband, 29-year-old Brian Epps attempted to leave the scene in his car, but crashed it before leaving on foot.

The victim’s father and two aunts along with members of the Birmingham chapters of the NAACP and National Action Network, as well as the Outcast Voters League held a press conference today urging Brian Epps to turn himself in or for authorities to offer a reward in his capture.

The father of the slain woman said he wants justice to be served.

“At this time there is just so much anger built up in me. Because of this that it’s hard to find the words to say or express how I feel. I just want justice done. As soon as possible. She didn’t deserve this and it hurts,” Rashon Epps' father Harry Parnell said.

Starting July 6, fliers will be sent out in Hoover area and the East Lake area where it is suspected that Brian Epps has family and friends. Brian Epps is currently at large and is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone who sees him is urged to call 911 immediately.
