After announcing that Tuesday suspicious death has been reclassified as a homicide, Calaveras authorities are now searching for a person of interest.

A man was found dead, and another person was found unconscious and bleeding, at a home in the small community of West Point around 11:25 a.m. Tuesday.

Calaveras Sheriff’s Detectives now want to talk to 31-year-old Gary F. McMahan. He has not been made a suspect, but sheriffs note that McMahan should be considered armed and dangerous. McMahan has two out-of-county warrants for his arrest.

Anyone who has seen McMahan is asked to call the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office at (209) 754-6500.
