Sacramento State police have increased campus security in the wake of a search for a suspect in connection with a murder in the city of Antioch last December.
Michael Pulliambanks, 19, who is wanted by Antioch police, is not a Sacramento State student. It is believed he was on campus Tuesday, May 10, visiting an acquaintance living in Desmond Hall. Antioch police have questioned the Desmond Hall resident, who was cooperative. They searched the residence halls and the campus, and it appears that the suspect had left.

Pulliambanks should be considered armed and dangerous. Sacramento State police have posted information about the suspect on buildings and digital signs around the campus.
Contact the Antioch Police Department at (925) 778-2441 or the Sacramento State Police Department at (916) 278-6851 with any information on the whereabouts of Pulliambanks.
