ELKO, Nev. (AP) — Police are looking for a 30-year-old Elko man they believe shot two people at a trailer park on the city’s south side and may still be armed.

Elko police identified Austin William Himmelman as the suspect in Thursday’s shooting.

“Himmelman should be considered armed and dangerous,” police said in a statement.

Officers found one male victim in front of a mobile home, and one female inside a trailer when they were called to the park at 10:17 a.m. Thursday.

Both victims were transported to Northeastern Nevada Regional Hospital in Elko, according to the Elko Daily Free Press.
