Fayetteville police are asking for the public’s help in finding a known gang member wanted on several charges, including attempted murder.

Police say Travion Dominique McQuirter is an admitted gang member who often spends time around the Bunce Road area of Fayetteville.

He is also wanted on charges of robbery with a dangerous weapon, assault with intent to kill and conspiracy.

He has a tattoo on his forearm that reads “Precious Gift of God;” another on his forearm that says “Tray;” and one on his neck that reads “Gladys.”

He has been arrested several times since 2007 on various charges, including larceny, possession of a stolen motor vehicle and simple assault.

Anyone with information about where he might be is asked to contact Fayetteville police at 910-433-1856 or Crime Stoppers at 910-483-TIPS.

All Crime Stoppers calls are confidential, and callers can receive up to $1,000 in reward money for information that leads to an arrest.

The police department’s request is part of a new initiative called FPD Bluelight Special to capture repeat offenders wanted for various crimes.

To date, the police department says, every suspect featured in the program has been captured within two weeks – with the fastest capture happening less than 24 hours after information being published.
