EPPING, N.H. (AP) - Police say a 14-hour manhunt for a registered sex offender implicated in a domestic disturbance in southeast New Hampshire has ended with an arrest.

Twenty-five-year-old Christopher Lemear was taken into custody Tuesday after Epping officers spotted him walking down Spur Road around 12:30 p.m.

Police say Lemear fled into the woods Monday wearing only a shirt and pajama bottoms after he fired two shots in a home around 10:30 p.m. Officers combed a 3-acre area near Old Nottingham Road for Lemear, who they considered “armed and dangerous.”

Lemear will be arraigned Wednesday on charges of reckless conduct and being a felon in possession of a firearm. The Epping man was convicted of burglary and felonious sexual assault in October 2009.

It’s unclear if Lemear has an attorney who can comment.
