TUCSON, Ariz. — Pima County sheriff’s deputies are searching for a man suspected of shooting a man and an 18-year-old girl to death.

Sheriff’s spokesman Cody Gress says 49-year-old Raymond Manny Valencia should be considered armed and dangerous.

Deputies called to a home Saturday night found 48-year-old Carlos Rendon and Jackelyne Padilla dead inside. Both had gunshot wounds.

It was not immediately clear how the victims were connected.

Detectives identified Valencia as a suspect after speaking with witnesses.

Gress did not say what the motive was or how Valencia was acquainted with the victims.

He is described as Hispanic, 5-foot-4, 145 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

He may be driving a white Ford Ranger with “Gila Pool Service” placards on the vehicle.
