ORANGE PARK, Fla. -- Investigators are now looking for the ex-husband of a woman found shot to death in an Oakleaf subdivision.

Investigators are looking for 44-year-old Adrian Bernard Seward.  He may be driving a black, 4-door, 2002 Hyundai sedan. The Florida license tag is 7955HJ.

The Clay County Sheriff's Office says he is to be considered armed and dangerous.

Deputies found 33-year-old Lashawna Lynn Criswell-Seward shot to death in a home on Pondview Drive in Orange Park.

Neighbors say the victim and suspect had an argument. When the victim ran to a neighbor's house, the suspect shot and killed her.

The two have a 7-year-old daughter.  Investigators say she was not home at the time of the shooting.  The girl is out of state on a trip with her biological father.

The Clay County Sheriff's Office says Seward has a criminal history out of Duval County.  In Clay County, Seward only had traffic violations.

According to a spokeswoman at NAS Jacksonville, Criswell-Seward worked there as a civilian engineering tech since 2009.

The couple's divorce was finalized on July 22, according to the Clay County Sheriff's Office.

Call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS. You will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward if your tip leads to an arrest.

The sheriff's office is holding a news conference at 4 p.m.  We will stream it on
