The suspect, who was considered armed and unsafe, was not found after a manhunt Friday, Coos County District Attorney Paul Frasier said.

Officials are asking anyone who sees the vehicle to call the police immediately but to not approach it.

Oen Nicholson, 30, is suspected of hitting and killing Anthony Oyster, 74, with a pickup truck and severely injuring his wife Linda Oyster, 73, at a casino RV park in North Bend Friday morning, FOX 12 of OR reported. His wife, 73-year-old Linda Oyster, also was hit and was in critical condition at a hospital Saturday.

Police later found Charles Nicholson, 83, dead inside a travel trailer in the same RV park where the Oysters were run over.

Oen Evan Nicholson, 30, surrendered to police in Milwaukee early Sunday morning, without incident, Coos Bay District Attorney R. Paul Frasier said at a news conference.

Just miles away, at a local cannabis shop, another person was killed in a shooting, according to authorities.

Cops are looking for a white 2019 Dodge 3500 pickup with the license plate 243-LWL.

Authorities found the stolen truck Friday near the small community of Noti, on a highway north of where the wave of violence took place.

A witness told investigators that the driver appeared to be armed with a handgun at the time of the crash and had run into the woods.

None of the victims has been identified, and Frasier said it was unclear what, if any, connection they had to the suspect. The truck had been set ablaze, Frasier said.
