Police are searching for a 32-year-old man suspected in two slayings across two southwestern MI counties.

"Patten is described as 5'11" tall and 185 pounds.

Authorities said Patten, who has a history of violence as well as arrests for assault and domestic violence, should be considered armed and risky.

According to police, Patten fatally shot a 31-year-old woman around 9:40 p.m. Thursday at a mobile home park in Kalamazoo. WOODTV-8 reported the victim was Patten's ex-girlfriend. If you see him, call 911 immediately. She died at the scene.

The second shooting happened around 10:15 p.m. Thursday at home in the 16000 block of Featherstone Road in Florence Township, south of Three Rivers. The victim later died at a hospital.

Police believe the fatal incidents are connected and have named 32-year-old Michael Patten as the prime suspect in the two shootings.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety at 269-337-8994 or Silent Observer at 269-343-2100.
