Authorities in Arizona are searching for a man who they say killed the mother of his two little boys and another man before abducting them on Saturday.
CBS5 reports that the Phoenix Police Department is searching for Dimas Coronado on suspicion of fatally shooting his children’s mother, Oralia Nunez, 24, along with another victim, Omar Gonzalez, 34. The incident occurred at around 4:20 a.m. on Saturday, at a home off of 32nd Avenue and Van Buren Street in Phoenix. Authorities said Nunez was eight months pregnant, resulting in a warrant for triple homicide charges for Coronado.
Coronado is also accused of fleeing with his two sons, Victor Coronado-Nunez, 8, and Jonathan Coronado-Nunez, 5. Coronado is considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached.
