Officers from multiple law enforcement agencies continue to search for a man accused of killing two people and seriously wounding a third last week.

Investigators have released no new information this week in their search for 35-year-old Kevin Robert Welsh of Toronto, Kansas. Welsh is wanted for a triple shooting near Eureka in Greenwood County last Wednesday.

Authorities say the shooting was domestic violence-related, leaving Welsh's 26-year-old ex-girlfriend wounded and her 52-year-old mother and 54-year-old stepfather dead. Their identities have still not been officially released.

In late August, Welsh was arrested for kidnapping a woman and two children. He was charged with three counts of kidnapping, three counts of using criminal restraint, two counts of aggravated assault, one count of criminal threat and one count of domestic battery. He bonded out on September 3 and was scheduled for a preliminary hearing later this month.

Welsh may have fled to Park City in Sedgwick County. Anyone with information is asked to call 911.
