POTTAWATOMIE COUNTY- (KOKH)

An “armed and dangerous suspect” is being sought after a Pottawatomie County sheriff’s deputy was shot on Friday morning.

The incident happened near Austin Drive in Pink.

Bethel Public Schools is currently in a shelter in place status until further notice. Students will remain in their safe locations, the school wrote on Facebook.

Braedon Chesser is wanted in connection to the shooting of a Pottawatomie County sheriff's deputy.

The suspect was identified as 27-year-old Braedon Chesser. He’s 5-foot-10 and weighs 185 pounds.

Vicki Lemmings lives next door to the suspect and says she heard several gunshots, at least 8- 9 shots around 8 am.

She says it’s not unusual to hear gunshots, but she says her neighbor normally shoots in the evening and it was offputting to hear gunshots this morning.

The condition and identity of the deputy are not known
