Police are not saying what may have been the suspect's motive or the circumstances surrounding the shooting on the city's west side. But, they're pulling out all the stops to try and find the man who pulled the trigger.

We saw investigators combing the scene of the triple shooting that left a young man and a pregnant 23-year-old woman dead. Her baby survived; a baby girl born the day her mother was murdered. A 75-year-old man was critically injured. Police say it's likely the gunman knew the victims. All three victims are related.

Police are looking for a 2006 silver Pontiac G6, which was likely stolen from the scene. Michigan license plate number: CLB-3064. The back window of the vehicle was broken out. Investigators are also looking for black man in his early to mid 20's with a slight build who may be behind the wheel.
