Video raises police alert

Seymour police continue to look for a man with a pellet gun caught on video Thursday morning near Seymour High School.

The pellet gun was found by a resident in the boulevards area east of the high school, Police Chief Bill Abbott said Friday.

Seymour Community Schools went on a lockdown Thursday because of calls to police about an armed man on West Second Street.

“We would like to talk to him,” Abbott said of the person sought in connection with the pellet gun.

He said there is no evidence the man, who appears to be in his late teens or early 20s, was ever on school property.

Abbott said police began receiving calls about the man about the same time they were receiving calls about a second person with a gun. It later was determined that the second person was a student carrying an umbrella.
