GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Investigators now say a person of interest in a double murder in Grand Rapids may be heading to Ohio.

Columbus, Ohio police tweeted a warning Thursday about 45-year-old Derrell Brown. He’s wanted in connection to the March 13 shooting deaths of 47-year-old Cherletta Baber-Bey and 25-year-old Keyona Griffin.

Police said Brown had been dating Baber-Bey and was living at the home on Sheldon Avenue where the murders happened. He hasn’t been seen since.
