Suspect sought in Kan. double homicide

EUREKA, Kan. (AP) -- Authorities in southeastern Kansas are searching for a 35-year-old suspect in connection with a shooting that left two people dead and another critically injured.

The Greenwood County Sheriff's Department says the suspect, Kevin R. Welsh, is considered armed and dangerous.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1c8BvZo ) that when deputies were headed to the Eureka home Wednesday evening on a burglary report, someone called 911 and said shots had been fired. When deputies arrived they found two people dead from gunshot wounds. A third person was taken to a Wichita hospital in critical condition with gunshot wounds.

The sheriff's office says the suspect is driving a late-model gold Explorer with a license plate of 20AXY.

Eureka has about 2,600 residents and is located about 60 miles east of Wichita.
