Manhunt in Geneseo for man who pointed gun at police

A manhunt is underway in Geneseo for a man accused of pointing a gun at an officer during a traffic stop Wednesday night.

Livingston County Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty identified the suspect as David Clyde Morgan and described him as having "a violent past and considered armed and dangerous."

In a briefing Wednesday night, Dougherty said that a preliminary investigation showed that Morgan pointed a weapon at the Geneseo officer who fired a round back, according to the Livingston County News.

Dougherty said this afternoon that the manhunt is continuing.

"We continue to search the area that Morgan was last observed going into a cornfield," he stated in a tweet. "We have cleared acres of fields and wooded areas with zero sightings of him."

The traffic stop occured at Route 63 and Dewey Hill (Route 20A). The suspect fled the scene on foot and was wearing a gray hoodie, gray baseball cap and blue jeans.

The SUNY Geneseo has canceled classes today due to the manhunt.

The Geneseo Central School District also canceled all school activities today.
