A search Livingston County for a man who apparently pulled a gun on police during a traffic stop. That suspect is identified as David Morgan of Wilmington North Carolina and police say he took off into a cornfield after shots were fired on Rt 63 near Cuylerville Road in Geneseo late Wednesday afternoon.. Morgan is described as as approximately 5’9 and 200 pounds and sheriff Thomas Dougherty says the suspect is armed and dangerous with a violent past, including a long prison term. Neighbors say they are worried and have been told to stay inside and be alert. A woman who was apparently riding with Morgan was taken into custody and she is said to be cooperating. If you spot Morgan or have any information about him, you are being asked to call Livingston County 9 1 1.

The charges carry a sentence of up to 15 years.
