Sean Petrozzino is armed and on the run ... except it's pretty difficult for him to actually be either. A quadruple amputee, the 30-year-old Petrozzino has been missing since Tuesday morning, when both of his parents were found fatally shot in their home. He is currently considered a "person of interest" in his parent's slayings and Tuesday morning, when the above video surveillance image was captured at a Orlando Wells Fargo ATM.

Petrozzino lost both his arms and legs as a complication of bacterial meningitis. WFTV reports that he recently moved back home after a bout of financial trouble.

He was last seen in his parent's red 2012 Toyota Camry. "We do believe he has a firearm. He's considered dangerous and they believe he is in the south Florida area," said Jane Watrel, with the Orange County Sheriff's Office. According to the Orange County Clerk of Court's website, Petrozzino's record is clean, save for some traffic violations.

Keep an eye out for Petrozzino (there's another photo below) and, if you have any information regarding this case, Orange County Sheriff's office is asking you to please call Crimeline at (407) 423-8477.

UPDATE: Sean Petrozzino committed suicide during a Tennessee traffic stop Monday, Nov. 10.
