A Florida murder suspect who escaped from a courtroom may be armed.

Broward County sheriff's investigators said Saturday they have received information that indicates 21-year-old Dayonte Resiles may have obtained a weapon. They declined to give further details, saying it could harm their search.

Resiles escaped Friday from the Broward County Courthouse. He was awaiting a hearing when he somehow escaped his shackles, jumped over a courtroom barrier and ran past bailiffs. He shed his jail jumpsuit and ran out of the courthouse.

Resiles faces murder and other charges in the Sept. 8, 2014, killing of Jill Halliburton Su, grand-niece of Halliburton Co. founder Erie P. Halliburton. Her body was found, bound at the hands and feet and stabbed multiple times, in the bathtub of her home in Davie, Florida.
