A possible sighting was reported late Friday night near Asher for a suspect who eluded law enforcement following a chase and manhunt in that area Thursday.

Deputies have been looking for Johnny S. Brown, 44, and on Friday, a $250,000 arrest warrant was issued, Pottawatomie County Undersheriff Travis Palmer said.

That warrant outlines charges including shooting with intent to kill, possession of a firearm after former conviction and use of a firearm during the commission of a felony, although other counts could be added later, he said.

Brown was caught in the act of burglarizing a home near Asher Thursday and allegedly fired shots at those who tried to intervene before leading deputies on a pursuit and then ditching his pickup and fleeing on foot. Despite a ground search by man trackers and the use of a drone from the air, he was not found Thursday.

Palmer said events began to unfold before noon Thursday at the scene of a burglary, 41174 Coker Road in Asher.

Authorities were called when a family member saw the suspect putting items into a pickup at another family member's home, then saw the driver of the pickup hook up to a trailer containing an off-road vehicle.

The family member tried to block the path of the truck, Palmer said, and the suspect allegedly told them to move or he would kill them, then fired two rounds at the ground.

As it progressed, another family member became involved by vehicle, Palmer said, with the suspect firing a shot and hitting the center of the windshield, with rounds hitting the vehicle twice. No injuries were reported.

Deputies became involved in a pursuit of the suspect vehicle, Palmer said, which ended in a rural field near Leo Road with the suspect bailing on foot.

A ground search was conducted in the area, with deputies using a drone and man trackers, with no luck finding that suspect.

Brown, who has a last known address in Oklahoma City, was believed to be in the area burglarizing homes. Palmer said deputies recovered all of the property involved in this incident, plus some additional property that didn't belong to this homeowner was found in the man's pickup.

Brown, who remained at-large at press time Friday, is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on his whereabouts should immediately call authorities.
