    Authorities are searching for a suspect connected to at least two deaths at two separate locations in Terrell Monday night.

    Two bodies were found inside homes in the same neighborhood in Terrell - a city about 30 miles east of Dallas.

    Authorities found the body of a woman in a home in the 400 block of Tyler Street.

    Investigators tell NBC 5 that the body of another woman was found in a home in the 300 block of Stalling Street. A member of the Terrell Fire Department saw smoke coming from the home and the body was found inside. 

    The fire is considered suspicious, according to authorities.

    The two homes are about a block away from each other.

    Neighbors tell NBC 5 that the two women are related.  

    A third incident occurred in the 800 block of North Francis Street where a shooting was reported.

    Capt. A.D. Sansom, a spokesperson with Terrell police, said the suspect in this case is Charles Brownlow. 

    Brownlow is considered to be armed and dangerous, according to Sansom. He might have ditched a car at College Mountain, near a cemetery.

    Another shooting - believed to be connected to the previous three incidents - was reported at Ali's Market located on US Highway 80 in the 700 block of West Moore Avenue. Police say someone was shot and killed inside this location.

    NBC 5 has received reports that a clerk may have been shot at the convenience store.

    The Garland Police Department, Department of Public Service, Kaufman Co. Sheriff's Office, Terrell Police Department and Texas Rangers are all investigating this situation.

    Authorities are urging the public to report any suspicious activity as the search for Brownlow continues.
