Officials in Price County are urging the public in the area to stay inside, locking doors and windows, as they search for a man reportedly armed with a shotgun.

Police say the man was on foot when he left a home on Ogema Prentice Road. The man, whose name has not been released, is considered a danger to himself.

The man is being described as 5’7″ tall, 200 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a black sweatshirt and cutoff blue jeans.

Price County Sheriff Brian Schmidt issued an alert Wednesday asking residents to stay inside and not approach the man, but call 911 instead.
