Man Released From Prison To Attend Funeral Escapes And Goes On The RunAlamy

A man is on the run from the police after being released from prison to attend a funeral and failing to return.

Shevirio Kavirion Childs-Young, 18, was let out of Minneapolis jail on the morning of January 3 after being given permission to attend the funeral of a family member, with a judge ruling that he must return to jail no more than three hours later.

He failed to reappear, however, and is now the subject of a manhunt as police attempt to find and rearrest him. His current whereabouts are unknown.

Childs-Young, who is described as having ‘a lengthy juvenile delinquency history involving assault and weapons offenses’, was in jail on charges of illegal possession of a firearm and obstructing an officer stemming from an arrest in November.

On November 30, Childs-Young was reportedly pulled over by police in Minneapolis, with officers claiming to have smelled marijuana coming from the car.

Upon searching the vehicle, officers discovered a loaded Glock pistol on the floor of the car, and initially arrested one of Childs-Young’s passengers, who had claimed to own the weapon.

The 18-year-old reportedly then told officers he was the owner of the gun, with officers claiming Childs-Young then ‘attempted to escape from custody by throwing his body out of the squad [car] forcefully’, allegedly assaulting a sheriff’s deputy in the process.

‘During this struggle, [Childs-Young] grabbed the deputy’s genital area and squeezed multiple times…the deputy continued to struggle to control [Childs-Young] until he was able to call for emergency assistance,’ a police report states, per the Daily Mail.

Childs-Young was reportedly prohibited from owning a firearm as a result of previous convictions, with Twin Cities reporting in July 2020 that he had been sentenced to 15 years in prison on kidnapping charges.
