COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP/CBS4) – A murder warrant has been issued for a 17-year-old juvenile police believe killed a soldier from California and his wife.

Colorado Springs police said Thursday that Macyo Joelle January should be considered armed and dangerous.

Authorities said earlier that David Dunlap, 37, of Moorpark, Calif., and Whitney M. Butler, 35, were shot by a burglar when they returned to their home about noon on Monday.

The Army says Dunlap was a staff sergeant in the 4th Combat Aviation Brigade at Fort Carson outside Colorado Springs. His specialty was repairing armament, electrical and avionic systems on Apache helicopters. He joined the Army in 2003 and arrived at Fort Carson in November.

He deployed to Iraq in 2007-08.

Fort Carson released this statement regarding the deaths of the Dunlap couple:

Fort Carson, the 4th Infantry Division and the 4th Combat Aviation Brigade are deeply saddened by this event and wish to extend condolences, and offer heartfelt thoughts and prayers, to the Families, friends and fellow Soldiers who have been affected by this terrible incident. Local Army chaplains and Military and Family Life consultants stand ready to provide assistance to any Family members or Soldiers in need of support or counseling.
