Deputies are taking the search for an armed and dangerous man door-to-door Thursday near Bozeman.

Park County Undersheriff Clay Herbst said his office was given authority to enter private homes as they continue to search for 36-year-old Shaunesy Cole. 

The incident started early Wednesday morning when officers tried to pull over a vehicle for suspected DUI. Law enforcement say the car initially pulled over but then took off onto a dirt road. That's when Cole reported fired shots at officers and then took off on foot. 

The search Wednesday lasted all day in the Quinn Creek area of Bozeman Pass between Bozeman and Livingston. 

The search Thursday has more manpower; 100 law enforcement officers are expected to be on scene.

Cole is described as Caucasian, 5 feet, 11 inches tall and about 170 pounds with a red mohawk haircut that was pressed down. He has numerous tattoos on his legs, arms and hands.

Law enforcement believe Cole is still in the Quinn Creek area. Only residents will be allowed in the area today.
