MORRISVILLE, Vt. (WFFF) — A 24-year-old Morrisville man suspected of shooting at police officers responding to a domestic disturbance remains at large early Saturday. Vermont State Police say Henry Lovell is “armed and dangerous.”
Lovell allegedly exchanged shots with a Morrisville police officer around 9 p.m. Thursday at an apartment near Upper Main Street and Pleasant Street before running away from the scene. That officer was hurt in the exchange.
Police described Lovell as 6’2″, 170 pounds, with blond hair. He was last seen wearing a camouflage-style jacket, dark pants, and a red ballcap.
Lovell does not have access to a vehicle and is likely still in the Morrisville area. Police warn that anyone who sees Lovell should keep their distance and immediately call 911.
Morrisville residents should expect a “considerable law-enforcement presence” and are advised to avoid the area of Upper Main and Pleasant Streets. Area schools have closed for the day, as state and local police continue their search.
