Homerecking for the Holidays

US police seek man after Thanksgiving party shootings.

Police in the US are searching for a man after four relatives - including a child - were shot dead at a family Thanksgiving dinner in Florida.

Paul Michael Merhige, 35, is considered armed and dangerous, police in the small Palm Beach town of Jupiter said.

The victims are a six-year-old girl who was shot in her bed, the man's twin sisters and his 76-year-old aunt.

Police said 17 relatives were gathered at the home for dinner on Thursday. The motive for the killings is unclear.

Authorities said a fifth victim, Mr Merhige's brother-in-law, was being treated in hospital for unspecified wounds.
