Son of a Pastor Murders Wife and Two others.

Andres ''Andy'' Avalos, 33, is seen in an undated picture released by the Manatee County Sheriff's Office in Bradenton, Florida.

Authorities in Florida are on the hunt for a 33-year-old man who they say went on a rampage killing his wife and two other people, including a pastor. Police on Thursday were searching for Andres 'Andy' Avalos. The Manatee County sheriff's office said he killed Pastor James 'Tripp' Battle, 31, at the Bayshore Baptist Church. 
A witness to the shooting told deputies at the scene about the other two victims, said sheriff's spokesman Dave Bristow.

'We don't know exactly what transpired,' Bristow said. Investigators went to the couple's house at 1200 67th Street Northwest in Bradenton and found the bodies of 33-year-old Amber Avalos, the suspect's wife of 14 years, and a neighbor, 46-year-old Denise Potter. Investigators believe Andy Avalos first killed the two women at home and then drove across town to the church at around 1pm to kill the pastor.
