GENESEO, N.Y. (AP) - The search is on in western New York for an ex-convict from North Carolina two days after authorities say he pointed a gun at a police officer during a traffic stop.

The Livingston County Sheriff's Office says 49-year-old David Clyde Morgan, of Wilmington, North Carolina, was pulled over Wednesday in Geneseo.

Officials say Morgan pointed a gun at the officer, who fired a shot. Morgan and a woman traveling with him then fled on foot.

She was captured soon afterward. Morgan remains at large Friday.

The woman has been identified as 40-year-old Sandra Brown of South Point, North Carolina. She was charged Thursday with menacing a police officer and criminal possession of stolen properties.

Brown is being held in jail on $100,000 bail. Prosecutors didn't know if she has a lawyer yet.
