FRANKLIN — Police have been out in force since early Wednesday morning looking for Ryan Brouillard, a man they consider to be "armed and dangerous."

Franklin Police Chief David Goldstein said things unfolded after an altercation between Brouillard and another man at about 2:15 a.m. on Prospect Street that spilled over to Pleasant Street. Goldstein was unable to confirm the other man's identity and did not say what started the altercation.

"We would like [Brouillard] just to quietly give himself up," Goldstein said.

When police officers arrived on scene, they reported seeing Brouillard with a gun and said a shot was fired. Officers backed off, took a tactical position and began securing the area. Prospect and Pleasant streets were closed, and a number of other nearby roads were also blocked off by police.

"They escorted me out with about four snipers and brought me down the stairs to the roadway and safely got me out of there," said Dwayne Mason, a Pleasant Street resident who was woken up by police at about 7 a.m. this morning.

Brouillard, 33, is described as white, 6-feet-5-inches tall and weighs about 250 pounds.

Some Franklin residents said this incident "isn't isolated."

Members of the Emery family, who live on Prospect Street, reported similar situations happening in the neighborhood before, saying there had been robberies at a nearby store that also drew police activity.

"Franklin can be a hard place to live [in] sometimes," resident Roy Emery said.
