SHERRILL, N.Y. -- Police have provided new information regarding the search for a man who allegedly fired at police following a foot chase early Saturday morning in Sherrill. 

Police say the officer, who was not shot, drew his weapon but did not fire. Whether the officer drew his weapon before or after the shot was fired is under investigation.

Investigators were at the scene on Monday morning continuing to gather evidence. Neighbors spoke to NEWSChannel 2 stating they're still on edge.

"I was just saying the night before that nothing ever happens in this town, and that we love this town, and that there is no crime. But it was right across the street from my house. It's concerning because we are the type of small-town that things don't happen like this. Now we are double-checking, locking doors, and locking cars. My husband was looking at cars going by because you are alarmed." said resident Jackie Mcelroy.

Chief Rob Drake told NEWSChannel 2 that the officer is doing ok, and has the week off.

"The officer is doing fine. I've been in touch with him. He's been offered services to make sure he's ok and we will just take it day by day," said Drake.

There is no updated description on the suspect. The Oneida County Sheriff's department is asking that if you saw anything or have any helpful information to contact them at 315-736-0141.
