BANDON, Ore. — A man authorities consider armed and dangerous is wanted in connection with the deaths of two people in Bandon on the southern Oregon coast.

District Attorney R. Paul Frasier said 33-year-old Gabriel Christopher Morris is believed to be armed with two handguns and traveling with his wife, Jessica, and 4-year-old daughter.

Frasier said sheriff's deputies went to a Bandon home Wednesday afternoon to ask about a truck abandoned in Coquille. Inside, they found the body of a man and woman who had died by "homicidal violence."

The names of the victims have not been released. Frasier declined to release the cause of death.

Frasier said Morris returned to the area within the last two months after living in Blackfoot, Idaho. Morris is believed to be armed with two handguns and should be considered armed and dangerous, Frasier said.

The couple is believed to be traveling in a silver Ford Taurus with Oregon plate YRK-052.
