Manhunt continues in Geneseo for man who pointed gun at police

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

The suspect has been identified as David Clyde Morgan; he is described by Livingston County Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty as having "a violent past and considered armed and dangerous."

Dougherty tweeted Friday morning that "the search continues for David Morgan. We have had zero confirmed sightings of Morgan since the traffic stop."

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.

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

Sandra Brown, who was a passenger with Morgan in the car involved in the traffic stop, was jailed on multiple charges Thursday evening.

Brown, 40, of South Port, North Carolina, was charged and arrested with multiple crimes following an incident involving the menacing of a Geneseo Police Officer. The charges: Menacing of a Police Officer (class D felony), Conspiracy in the 5th Degree (class A misdemeanor), Obstructing Governmental Administration in the 2nd Degree (class A misdemeanor), Menacing in the 2nd Degree (a class A misdemeanor), Criminal Possession of Stolen Property in the 4th Degree (class E felony) and Unlawful Possession of Marijuana.

SUNY Geneseo, which canceled classes Thursday, reopened Friday.
