State Police believe that the suspect, Jason D. Johnson, is still in the area of East Windsor Road area near Thorn Hill in the town of Colesville and ask residents to remain alert. Afton, Harpursville, and Windsor School Districts have closed their physical buildings and activated full remote learning procedures for today, June 10.

Authorities say that Johnson is armed and dangerous and should not be approached under any circumstance. If he is seen, 911 should be called immediately.

None of us want to believe that we'll ever find ourselves in the middle of an active manhunt but the sad reality is that we all need to prepare ourselves and our family members for any and all types of scary situations.

We hope you don't, but should you ever find yourself in the middle of an active manhunt, there are some things you should do to keep yourself and the ones you love safe.
