ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (AP) - Police in northeast Florida are searching for a man in connection with the slaying of two people.

The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office reports that they are looking for James Colley after investigators found the bodies Thursday morning.

Police say Colley's wife and a family friend were shot at a home in the city's MuraBella subdivision.

The St. Augustine Record reports that Colley broke into the home following a domestic dispute.

Sheriff David Shoar says Colley has two children, one of whom attends a nearby school.

St. Johns County authorities placed three schools on lockdown.

Colley was in court Thursday morning for violating an injunction and had been ordered to surrender his weapons and to stay away from one of the shooting victims.
