Armored car guard Kenneth Konias Jr., 22, is wanted a theft of $2.3 million and the fatal shooting of his partner.

PITTSBURGH -- Police say there's no indication the Pittsburgh armored car guard wanted in the fatal shooting of his partner and theft of $2.3 million has left the country.

Pittsburgh police Commander Thomas Stangrecki says it doesn't appear that 22-year-old Kenneth Konias Jr. has crossed and borders or departed from any airport since killing his partner last week and leaving him in the cargo area of the idling truck.

Investigators say Konias shot 31-year-old Michael Haines in the back of the head inside a Garda Cash Logistics truck as it was parked under a Pittsburgh bridge.

Authorities say Konias called friends and family after the killing, including one person he asked about extradition laws in Canada and Mexico.

FBI Special Agent Robert Ambrosini says investigators are getting tips from "various cities."
