Massachusetts State Police were continuing to search on Monday for an “armed and dangerous” Gardner murder suspect, as authorities asked for the public’s help in the investigation.
Police were looking for 33-year-old Aaron Pennington, who is wanted in connection with Sunday’s homicide of 30-year-old Breanne Pennington, of 42 Cherry St. in Gardner.
According to State Police, the 6’2″ tall white man weighing about 175 pounds is believed to be driving a white BMW 320, Massachusetts Veterans plate 8A30.
Pennington may have attached one of the following registrations to the white 2013 BMW 320 sedan: Texas plate: DTZ3103; or California plate: 6CWN728.
The 33-year-old man, with blond hair and blue eyes, might have a gun on him.
“He should be considered armed and dangerous,” State Police said in a statement. “Any member of the public who sees PENNINGTON or the vehicle is directed to not approach him but rather, to call 911 immediately.”
