LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The Lansing Police Department and US Marshals Service are still looking for Brion Reynolds, the man wanted in connection with the murder of Michelle Roper and Alexis Brown.

Update: Lansing murder suspect Brion Reynolds in custody, police say

Michelle Roper was the mother of Alexis Brown, who had children with Reynolds, 3-year-old Lilliana Reynolds and 4-year-old Zymani Reynolds.

In the afternoon of Sept. 16 Reynolds, 23, and a friend, Gavin Anspach, arrived at a home on W. Michigan Ave. in Lansing. There, police believe Reynolds fatally shot Roper and Brown, as well as wounded a 6-year-old boy, before taking Lilliana and Zymani.

The two girls were found hours later, while the 6-year-old survived a gunshot wound. Gavin Anspach was apprehended by police shortly thereafter, but Brion Reynolds has remained hidden from police for months.
