LEOMINSTER, Mass. — A police officer had Matthew S. Strong in his gun sights during a protracted chase Monday, according to Leominster District Court records.

Strong had threatened to kill himself, so police were trying to catch up to him to make sure he did not hurt himself, but court records show he would not obey orders and at one point drove his car toward an oncoming police car.
