---- — LONDONDERRY — Police this morning captured a man at Manchester-Boston Regional Airport who allegedly fired a handgun earlier in his Londonderry neighborhood.

Officers are still investigating. Police did not immediately disclose what charges may be pending against Pearson.

Police searched the neighborhood after receiving the report shortly before 8:30 a.m. Pearson eluded them after someone picked him up and dropped him at the airport.
