The Texas Rangers will be helping Temple police in the case of two men found dead late Wednesday night at an auto parts store.

Police were sent to  O'Reilly Auto Parts at 1720 SW H.K. Dodgen Loop at 11:34 p.m. on what was listed as a " welfare check " call.

When they got there,  they found two dead men inside.

While details of the incident have still not been released, police say they do have a suspect they are seeking and that he is believed to have been involved in an attack at another auto parts store in Belton earlier in the evening.

Police are looking for 47-year-old Theodore Dwayne Sims, who they say should be considered armed and dangerous.

Police advise members of the public who believe they have seen this man they should call 9-1-1 immediately and not to approach him.

Sims is also listed as a suspect in an aggravated assault at the NAPA Auto Parts store at 1000 East 6th Avenue in Belton.

A Belton spokesman says in that incident a man described as a former employee entered the store at closing time with a shotgun.

The two employees fled and no shots were fired at that location.
