Sheriff: Search underway for man who pulled gun on officer

Associated Press

Authorities say they’re searching for a convicted drug dealer a day after a police officer fired a shot at him during a traffic stop in western New York.

Livingston County Sheriff Thomas Dougherty says a Geneseo (jeh-NEH’-see-oh) police officer stopped a car with North Carolina plates on Wednesday.

The sheriff says a man identified as David Clyde Morgan of Wilmington, North Carolina, pointed a weapon. The officer fired in response before the man fled. A woman in the car also ran but was caught.

Authorities are searching a rural area south of Rochester. Classes at the nearby State University of New York at Geneseo are cancelled as a precaution.

Federal records show Morgan pleaded guilty in 2002 to drug conspiracy. He was released from prison in March 2017.
