Police in Maine are searching for a man wanted in connection with New York City's first homicide of the year.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ Deputy Police Chief Jarred Mills in Augusta, Maine, told WZON-AM that Raymond Mayrant was seen early Wednesday at a Motel 6, inquiring about whether a passport is needed to cross into Canada.

Police have issued a bulletin for a stolen Black Nissan Altima he's believed to be driving.

Police in New York say the 25-year-old Mayrant shot his girlfriend and her mother during an argument on Jan. 3. The mother, 59-year-old Elzina Brown, died at the scene.

New York City saw a record-low number of murders last year with 418.
