Police in central Pennsylvania have issued an East Coast bulletin for a man charged with riddling his ex-girlfriend's home with 21 shots from an assault rifle. Police in Logan Township, about 85 miles east of Pittsburgh, say 33-year-old Joseph Olecki shot up the woman's home after she ended their 10-year-relationship about 10 p.m. Saturday night.

Police say Monday Olecki remains armed and very dangerous. He's originally from Scranton.

Olecki faces attempted homicide and other charges. Court papers say he has six stolen assault rifles with him and told the woman he plans to "take out as many people as possible" before he's caught.

Police say Olecki may be driving his black 2005 Ford F-150 pickup with Pennsylvania license plate YTV-7328.
