Nacogdoches authorities are searching for a man who allegedly pulled a rifle on a jogger in a local park Monday morning.

Shortly before 6:00 a.m., officers dispatched to Lanana Creek Trail to reports of someone wielding a gun in the Pecan Park on the 800 block of E Starr Avenue.

The victim told police he was running on the trail when a middle-aged white man, who was dressed in camouflage, appeared behind him, pointing a deer rifle in his direction. The gunman then re-entered a wooded area near the trail.

The Nacogdoches Police Department closed the trail from Main Street to the back of Pecan Park while they hunted for the man. They were not able to locate the alleged gunman and reopened the trail at around 8:30 a.m.

Authorities will continue to investigate the incident.
