Suspect identified in Fort Smith shooting deaths

FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) -- Police in Fort Smith say they've identified a Tennessee man as a suspect in a shooting that killed two women -- including one who was pregnant.

Capt. Jarrard Copeland said in a late Tuesday night news release that 36-year-old Kevin Wolfe is wanted on three counts of capital murder in the Monday shooting deaths of Jada Moses, Aligene Seals and of Seals' fetus. He's also wanted for attempted capital murder of a woman who was wounded in the shooting at a Fort Smith apartment complex.

The release says Wolfe is from the Memphis, Tenn., area and has friends in Fort Smith. He is considered armed and dangerous.

A motive for the shooting has not been released.
