ORANGE, Calif. (AP) -

Police in the Southern California city of Orange say a man and a woman have been found dead inside a home and a neighbor says the man was the father of former NASCAR racer Robby Gordon.

Lt. Fred Lopez says officers discovered the bodies in an upscale suburban neighborhood after receiving a 911 call Wednesday afternoon.

Officials say a weapon was found at the scene, and police do not believe a suspect is at large.

The Orange County coroner's office identifies the deceased as 68-year-old Robert Gordon and 57-year-old Sharon Gordon.

Jill Dombroske, a longtime neighbor, says Robert Gordon was the father of racer Robby Gordon. Calls to Robby Gordon were not immediately returned Thursday.

Police say the cause of the deaths have not been determined.

Robby Gordon's off-road racing team will be in Orange County this weekend.
