Czech police seek US man suspected of 4 murders

An American man suspected of killing four people is on the run in the Czech Republic and likely armed, officials said Thursday.
Brno Police spokeswoman Petra Vedrova identified the man as Kevin Dahlgren, born in 1992, and released his photograph. A Facebook page showing the same photograph says that Dahlgren is from Palo Alto, California, and lives in Brno, the Czech Republic's second-largest city.
Local firefighters spokesman Jaroslav Mikoska said rescuers arrived to tackle a fire at a family house in the Brno neighborhood of Ivanovice late Wednesday and discovered "that a violent crime has likely been commited there."
He said firefighters immediately called police to the scene. He declined to provide more details, citing a police request.
The local CTK agency said two members of a local band _ Ukulele Orchestra jako Brno _ were among the victims. Dahlgren's Facebook page contained a link to the band, which announced Thursday that it has canceled all concerts for the coming days.
Police asked the public for help finding Dahlgren, but warned that he is dangerous and likely has a gun. They did not immediately release any other details about the suspect or about the killings.
Brno is located 200 kilometers (125 miles) southeast of Prague. Police say they cooperated with international law enforcement agencies to confirm the man's identity.
