Original story

People in the area of the fairgrounds and Walmart in Little Falls are being asked by authorities to stay inside until a dangerous suspect in the area is arrested. 

At 6:13 p.m., the Morrison County Sheriff's Department said they are searching for a suspect still at large – a man they say should be considered armed and dangerous. 

The suspect, 36-year-old Robert James Devereaux, was last seen on foot in the fairgrounds area, east of Walmart in Little Falls. Devereaux was wearing an aqua/green shirt and blue jeans. 

Anyone in that area is urged to seek shelter and stay inside with your doors locked. 

"Do not answer your door. If you see a person matching this description, do not confront him. Call 911 immediately. We are asking everyone to stay away from this area," the sheriff's off said.
