Wanted: Shaun Springer


The U.S. Justice Department is asking for help locating a Massachusetts man believed to be armed and dangerous.

"Fugitive of the Week" Shaun Springer, 27, is wanted on two outstanding felony warrants, including second degree assault by choking in Portsmouth and assault with intent to murder involving discharge of a firearm in Lynn, Mass.

Springer has family and friends in the Boston/Lynn metro areas of Massachusetts and ties to the Seacoast, according to U.S. Deputy Marshall Jeffrey White Jr.

"We are looking to get additional coverage in an effort to get more tips that will likely lead to the location and arrest of Springer," White said.

Spring is a black male, 5'8", 200 pounds, with black hair. His last known residence was in Portsmouth.

If you spot Springer, do not attempt to apprehend him yourself. Report any information to the U.S. Marshall Service at 603-225-1632 or 1-877-WANTED-2.
