Murder Suspect Could be Headed to Michigan

(WXYZ) - A man accused of killing four family members in Florida on Thanksgiving could be heading to southeast Michigan. The alert for this suspected killer was put out Friday night by Birmingham Police. Police say 35-year-old Paul Michael Mirhage opened fire on his own family in Jupiter, Florida, Thursday night just after the Thanksgiving dinner. They say he was an invited guest who walked outside and came back in and started shooting, killing his twin 33-year-old sisters; one of them was pregnant Mirhage is also accused of killing a 79-year-old aunt and a 6-year-old cousin who was already in her bed.
Prosecutors issued an arrest warrant for four counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder for Merhige on Saturday night and a $10,000 reward was offered for information leading to his arrest.
Police in Jupiter, Florida, and in Birmingham, Michigan, have put out an alert, because Mirhage is on the run and believed to be heavily armed. He may have lived in the Birmingham area for a short time within the past year or so, and may have seen a doctor here.
