DALLAS, Wis. (AP) -- A fugitive wanted in Barron County is still at large following a manhunt by numerous law enforcement agencies.

Sheriff's officials say they received a call about 5:30 p.m. Monday that the armed suspect was outside a residence near Dallas. The man fled before deputies arrived. But, they found his truck in a field not far away.

Dunn County sheriff's deputies, the Washburn County SWAT team, Turtle Lake Police and the Wisconsin State Patrol were involved in the search by land and air. Officials say the suspect is armed and potentially dangerous.
