    Police are searching for a suspect they said should be considered armed and dangerous after a shooting in Middletown Thursday that led to schools being placed in secure mode.

    Police identified 22-year-old Kyshone M. Jackson Jr., of Middletown, as a suspect. They said they are familiar with him and are asking for help from the public to find him.

    The victim was shot in the face in the 400 block of Long Lane around 1 p.m. and was transported to Saint Francis Hospital. It’s not clear how severe the injury is, but he is expected to survive.

    He had fled from the area before police arrived.

    Schools were placed in secure mode during the investigation and Long Lane was shut down.

    Police said there is no known threat to the public.
