JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - A manhunt is under way in Florida for a man police say opened fire on his family after Thanksgiving dinner and killed four people.

Paul Michael Merhinge of Miami is believed to be driving a royal blue 2007 Toyota Camry with a rear spoiler and a Florida license plate.

Authorities say 17 people were gathered in the home in Jupiter, Fla., on Thursday when the shootings happened. The town is about 90 miles north of Miami and is known as a home to celebrities such as Michael Jordan and Burt Reynolds.

Police say the victims are Merhige's pregnant sister, her twin, a 6-year-old cousin and a 79-year-old aunt.
