Officials said a man and a woman in their mid-30s were shot in Ortonville, a small town in Brandon Township.

Police said a 3-year-old girl was in the home at the time of the shooting. She was not injured.
Investigators with the Oakland County Sheriff's Department scoured through an apartment complex, where the victims were found.

Police released an image of Michael Joseph Quigley, 34, who is suspected in connection with the shooting. He is known to the Oakland County Sheriff's Department and Michigan State Police in the area.

Quigley is believed to be on foot in the neighborhood in downtown Ortonville. The police station is just across the street.
"We're telling everyone to please stay indoors," a police spokesman said. "We have a lot of resources out here. We have a lot of canine dogs. We have deputies from all over the area. Our special investigations unit is out here. Our fugitive unit is out here. We're combing through the area. Our helicopter is in the air.
"So we're asking everyone to please stay inside. We have received some calls, and we're aware that some people have been outside their residents armed after they've heard what happened. We're asking everyone to just please go back inside and keep the doors locked and don't be doing that."
Officials believe Quigley is laying low in the neighborhood. According to Oakland County court records, Quigley's wife filed for divorce last week.
