PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - Paducah police are searching for a man after he broke into a home and threatened its occupants with two handguns.

According to police, Jamal Nance broke into a home on the southside of Paducah around 8 a.m. on Nov. 13.

One of the residents told police that Nance went into the bedroom of the home and threatened a man and woman with two handguns.

The residents said Nance assaulted the female and fought with the man, apparently over and on-going dispute witha member of the man's family.

There were four small children inside the home at the time, but non of them were hurt.

Police believe Nance is still armed and has stated that he is prepared to use them against police officers if they try to arrest him.

Paducah police urge the public not to approach Nance or assist him.

Residents may be subject to arrest if they provide shelter or transportation to a suspect facing charges.

Nance is being charged with first-degree wanton endangerment, first-degree burglary, fourth-degree assault and possession of handgun.

Crime stoppers are offering a $750 reward to anyone that can provide information about Nance's whereabouts.
