The Santa Maria Police Department said they believe they boy's father, Konstantin Morozov, 48, (pictured right) took the child.

Malkmus says Konstantin and Natalia were married and recently divorced.

Police issued the alert after they were dispatched to a shooting at 230 N. College Drive in Santa Maria.

A statewide Amber Alert was issued Tuesday morning for a 9-year-old boy who was abducted after a fatal shooting in Santa Maria, authorities said.

The boy is described as white, 4'5 and weighing around 90pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

Another person from Morozova's church says she saw Natalia and her son, Daniel, who is still missing, just last Sunday at mass.

Several lawmakers, both Republican and Democrat, have stated publicly that the Secret Service need more support. By comparison, the Secret Service protected only 11 individuals when Barack Obama was in office.

Morozov was last seen driving a 2015 blue Volkswagen hatchback, but has abandoned that vehicle and is now believed to be traveling in a black Jeep Cherokee with license plate 7XZK698.

Marozov's mother was the victim in the shooting, Sgt. Jesus Valle told the Los Angeles Times.

Konstantin Morozov is white, 6 feet tall, 180 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. He is considered armed and risky.

Close friends and clergy have identified the woman shot to death Monday night in Santa Maria as Natalia Morozova, also called Natasha by friends.

Police are asking people to pay special attention to worldwide airports and border crossings, where Morozov may be headed with the boy. If seen, call 911.
