PLAINVILLE, Conn. (AP) _ Police in Plainville spent the night searching for a man they say is armed and dangerous.

Police say Lawrence Bald Jr. was involved in a domestic incident Thursday evening and fled into the nearby woods with a gun after threatening to shoot a relative.

Authorities blocked off several roads and asked residents in the area to stay in their homes.

Others say they could not get home while police searched near the Plainville Middle School.

The state police helicopter was brought in to assist in the search.

Authorities from several departments were still looking Friday morning.
