Chicago’s most wanted criminal might soon go national.

Robert Fuentes, an East Chicago resident suspected of killing a man at a Gary, Ind., gas station late last year, might soon appear on America’s Most Wanted. In the meantime, he’s on the program’s newly designed homepage.

The show is looking to dedicate a segment of its program to the “‘Evil' Murder Case” of Fuentes, who allegedly shot and killed 26-year-old Ronald Grayson just outside a Gary gas station’s convenience store in November 2008.

The two had been at the center of a heated discussion, which quickly turned into tragedy after Fuentes pulled out a gun from the back of his pants and shot Grayson twice, killing him instantly.

Investigators were able to identify Fuentes thanks to a recording made by the station’s surveillance camera, which clearly showed the word ‘EVIL’ tattooed on the right side of the fugitive’s neck.

A known gangbanger with the East Chicago-based Two-Sixers street gang, Fuentes has previously been found guilty of criminal recklessness and possession of a handgun without license, police officers told Fox.

If caught, Fuentes might face up to 73 years in prison.

America's Most Wanted has a hotline to call (1-800-CRIME-TV) in case of sightings of Fuentes or any other of America’s most wanted.
