Man accused of pulling a gun on two drivers in a matter of minutes

In the middle of the afternoon, back in the middle of September, officials say 36-year-old Theodore Samuel Sharp wrestled a gun away from another man in Lexington.

Sergeant Jay Pittman, with the Fayette County Sheriff's Office, says after Sharp got the gun, he jumped into a van, pointed the stolen gun at the driver, who was someone he didn't know, and told him to take him a few blocks away.

Officials say Sharp then jumped out of the van, then did the same thing to another driver. He allegedly jumped into her car, pointed the gun at her and told her to drive him out of the area.

Sheriff's deputies have been looking for Sharp at his registered address, on East Maxwell Street. But the people living there say he doesn't live there anymore.
