DETROIT — The Latest on the fatal shootings of four people in Detroit (all times local):

Detroit police are seeking a 27-year-old man suspected of fatally shooting the mother of his child, an adult cousin and two other people.

Officer Holly Lowe, a police spokeswoman, identified the suspect in Monday morning’s shootings as George Anthony Davis Jr.

Police Cmdr. Jacqueline Pritchett says investigators believe Davis shot the mother of his child and another woman while they were in an SUV at a gas station on Detroit’s northwest side, and that he shot a man filling it with fuel. She says they think Davis then drove to a location about a mile away and gunned down his cousin before fleeing.

Pritchett says police have been in contact with Davis and are encouraging him to surrender. She says the victims and Davis all knew each other.

A preliminary investigation indicated that the suspect and the man pumping fuel were involved in a shootout around 8:50 a.m.
