LINCOLN CITY, Ore. (AP) -- Police surrounding a motel on the Oregon coast are using a loudspeaker to try to persuade a man inside to surrender.

Police on Tuesday said they believe the man in the motel is Michael Boysen, who is suspected of killing his grandparents last weekend in Renton, Wash.

Two loud bangs could be heard at the motel in Lincoln City early Tuesday afternoon. It was not clear what caused the bangs.

Police had sent a small robot up some stairs and onto a balcony of the motel before the blasts. A loudspeaker was used to tell the suspect to throw down his weapons and surrender.
