Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) – The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public’s help in trying to locate a man who is accused of firing a gun near or at another person in rural Wabasha County Tuesday night.

A spokesman says the incident happened around 10 p.m. near Mazeppa.

Being sought is 37-year-old Aaron Michael Anderson.

He is also wanted on drug and stolen vehicle charges.  A warrant was issued for his arrest last Friday.

The sheriff’s office says Anderson has an extensive criminal history that includes narcotics offenses, motor vehicles thefts, and fleeing from law enforcement on foot and in motor vehicles.

Anderson is accused of making threatening statements during Tuesday night’s incident, both to the victim and law enforcement.  Because of that, the office says Anderson “is in a dangerous state of mind and should not be approached.”  

Anyone who sees Anderson is asked to call 911 and provide as much information as possible such as a vehicle description, license plate, and clothing description.
