HAMPTON -- Hampton Police are still searching for a man associated with Tyrek Allen.

An anonymous tip received on Friday sent police to an apartment located at the first block of Belmont Court in Hampton. They were there to arrest wanted man, Floyd Taybron.

In the early hours of Saturday morning police began putting that warrant in motion. Officials at the scene evacuated nearby apartments and placed neighbors in a clubhouse for safety.

A spokesperson for Hampton police said the SWAT team and negotiators were brought in to help Taybron "surrender peacefully." 

Police did enter the apartment but did not find Taybron. He is still wanted by police.

Tyrek Laquann Allen is wanted for numerous charges, including a triple shooting and homicide on July 21 and 22 in Newport News.    

Anyone with information regarding this case should call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
