Police in Michigan are looking for a “armed and dangerous” woman suspected of murdering her boyfriend and brother on Sunday morning, according to the Post.
The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office has cautioned the community not to engage Ruby Taverner, 22, a petite double homicide suspect, according to MILive.
Deputies responded to a report of gunfire at a Clarkston apartment complex at 3:20 a.m. Sunday, according to cops.
Ruby Taverner’s boyfriend, 26-year-old Ray Muscat of Independence Township, and her brother, 25-year-old Bishop Taverner of Oxford, were discovered dead at the scene. Both had been shot to death.
According to authorities, Bishop Taverner was located in the living room with a single gunshot wound. Muscat’s body was discovered in a back bedroom.
Ruby Taverner and Ray Muscat — formerly Amber Muscat — had lived together, according to authorities, but it was hard to say how long they had been in a romantic relationship.
Ruby Taverner’s smartphone and car were discovered at the scene. According to cops, she fled on foot.
She was described by police as a slim, white woman with purple hair. She weighs 115 pounds and measures 5 feet 2 inches tall.
She has three licenced handguns in her name, including one purchased within the last week, according to authorities.
The circumstances surrounding the shooting are still being investigated by investigators.
“Our Fugitive Apprehension Team, additional Detectives, and assets are actively seeking this homicide suspect, whom we think is armed and dangerous,” Oakland Sheriff Michael Bouchard said in a statement, according to MILive. “Please call 911 if you see her or know where she is.”
