Laurel Deputies Searching for Man Considered “Armed & Extremely Dangerous”

Zachary Franke
Officers in Laurel County are currently searching for a man they consider to be armed and extremely dangerous after he allegedly opened fire on a woman for no reason.

At around 2:45 Wednesday afternoon, deputies were told that Zachary Franke, who was staying at a home on Konitzer Lane (in the Sublimity area), had reportedly fired a pistol at a cleaning lady. Deputies believe he did it without being provoked.

Franke then allegedly hopped on a bicycle and headed south on Highway 1006 toward Lily. That was the last time he was seen.

Franke is in his early 20s with a slim build and military-style haircut. When he was last spotted, he was wearing a mustard-colored shirt, blue jeans and was carrying a cammo backpack and riding a white bicycle.

He is also a military veteran.

If anyone sees Franke, they should call 911 immediately.

No word if the cleaning woman was hurt in the incident.
