KILLINGLY, CT (WFSB) -

Connecticut State Police captured a fugitive in Killingly on Wednesday afternoon, along with a firearm and a potential explosive device.

Neighbors said several squad cars surrounded a house on Mill Street for nearly five hours as investigators went in and out of the home. 

State police said they took one person into custody because they had a warrant out. 

Investigators said they confiscated a gun, along with a potential explosive device. 

Eyewitnesses said a few people were evacuated from nearby homes during the investigation, but have since been allowed to return.
