As a “armed and dangerous” guy is on the loose, a shelter-in-place order has been issued for the town and schools in Virginia.

Residents of a Virginia hamlet were told to remain indoors on Thursday while police searched for a dangerous and armed man who had allegedly tried to drive over two cops with a stolen police vehicle.

Jerrod Celablee Brown snatched further firearms from the police car after it crashed and he fled on foot, according to the Pulaski Police Department, so officers gathered in the Southside of Pulaski to look for him.

Numerous gunshots have been heard in the neighborhood, although it is now unclear who fired them, according to the police, who also stated that no law enforcement officers have yet fired their weapons.

As the manhunt goes on, police confirmed there have been no reported injuries.


Officials issued an order for all Southside homeowners and students at nearby schools to remain indoors until the issue is rectified. Officials warned the public to stay away from the Valley Street to Draper Mountain Lookout area and stated that traffic was not permitted to cross the mountain.

Along with the School Board Office, the schools under the shelter-in-place order were Pulaski Elementary School, Critzer Elementary School, Dublin Elementary School, Pulaski County Middle School, and Pulaski County High School.

According to a Facebook post from Pulaski County Public Schools, “This is purely a preventative step, and there are no actual issues within any Pulaski County Public Schools facilities.”
