ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Officers are looking for a person they believe is a teen armed with a gun in an Annapolis suburb on Monday, hours after the window of a responding officer’s cruiser was shattered, police said.

A woman walking in the woods in the Cape Saint Claire area came across a teen with what looked like a handgun and when she asked him what he was doing, he replied that he was “shooting small critters,” Anne Arundel County police Lt. Jaclyn Davis said at a news conference Monday afternoon. The woman alerted police and an officer who responded to the area of Hilltop Road and Blue Ridge Drive was sitting in his cruiser when he heard a pop and the rear window shattered, she said.

Investigators believe they have a strong lead on where the teen is and they don’t believe there is any danger to the public, she said. Police had been asking people to shelter in place, but they’ve now reopened roads in the area. Davis said there will still be a heavy police presence there.
