Metro Police detectives are searching for 22-year-old Angel Manuel Rivera in connection to Thursday night's home invasion and murder of James L. Wade, 23.

Rivera and three accomplices allegedly stormed Wade's 908 Hermitage Ridge home shortly before 11 p.m. and held Wade and three friends at gunpoint, police said. Two of the accomplices then began going through the house.

When Wade stood up to confront Rivera, who was armed with a pistol, he fired at Wade. He was hit in the upper body and died shortly after arriving at a hospital.

Detectives said they recovered several marijuana plants from the home. Efforts are continuing to identify the two men who arrived with Rivera, police said.

Rivera was named in an arrest warrant charging him in the murder, police said.

Anyone with information about Rivera's whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
