BLISSFIELD, Mich. - Authorities say a suspect being sought in the shooting deaths of two sisters in southeast Michigan is believed to be one of the women's ex-boyfriend.
Michigan State Police Lt. Mardella Horhn says authorities are looking Sunday for 38-year-old Thomas Fritz of Sylvania, Ohio, who hasn't been charged but is wanted for questioning and is considered armed and dangerous.
Trooper Sean Street at the Monroe post says a nationwide search is under way for Fritz.
State police say 24-year-old Lisa Gritzmaker, 34-year-old Amy Merrill and their mother were shot at a home about 11:40 p.m. Friday in Blissfield, about 20 miles northwest of Toledo, Ohio. Police found the women after responding to a 911 call from one of the victims.
The mother is conscious and expected to live.
