KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Authorities across Missouri are searching for a man who is wanted in connection to a quadruple homicide in Kansas City, Kan.
Police say they are looking for 40-year-old Pablo Serrano-Vitorino in connection to the case. Serrano-Vitorino is described as 5 foot 10 inches tall and 175 pounds. He was last seen wearing a red and black flannel jacket, blue hooded sweatshirt, and possibly blue jeans.
Police found Serrano-Vitorino's Red 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck, bearing Kansas tag 729HED, abandoned along I-70 near Montgomery County, Mo., which is approximately 170 miles east of Kansas City.
As of 8:15 a.m., the Missouri Highway Patrol was searching the area for Serrano-Vitorino who may be armed with an AK-47. Anyone who believes they know where Serrano-Vitorino is asked to call 911 immediately. Authorities say you should not approach him.
KCK police were dispatched to the 3000 block of South 36th Street around 11 p.m., Monday., when a man reported that he and three others had been shot.
When police arrived on the scene they found three men dead from apparent gunshot wounds. A fourth person, who was on the porch, was taken to the hospital to be treated for gunshot wounds, but he later died from his injuries. The identity of the four victims has not yet been released.
Kelly Bailiff with the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Office told FOX 4 that Serrano-Vitorino was in the Wyandotte County jail in June of 2015 for an alleged charge of domestic battery. Bailiff did not elaborate on the charge.
Investigators are still trying to determine what led up to the quadruple homicide, but they did say they do not believe this was a random act. Police say Serrano-Vitorino lived in the neighborhood where the shooting took place and is believed to be at the house when the shooting happened but left right after.
"There's a lot of neighbors outside," officer Cameron Morgan with the Kansas City, Kan., police department said. "A lot of them know each other, a lot of these houses back here are owned by the same people, so they're all familiar with each other. They had some information for us, but they all pretty much heard and saw things."
A woman on the scene named Ruth Harter said one of the victims was her husband and another was her brother-in-law.
"I want him found," Harter said referring to Serrano-Vitorino. "I just want justice for my kids."
Harter told FOX 4 that she is currently eight-months pregnant and has a two-year-old daughter at home.
"This family just had a lot of losses lately and they just really need everybody's prayers in and help to try to find whoever did this," family friend Lana Payton said.
Anyone with any information regarding the case is asked to call the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474-TIPS.
