The Oakland County Sheriff's Office says 34-year-old Michael Quigley from Clarkston shot his 33-year-old estranged wife and a man whose age is unknown.

They both were reportedly shot in the head. 

Neighbors say the gunshots rang out during a domestic dispute at an apartment on Village Court. We're told the woman recently filed for divorce from Quigley on November 7 and was in the process of obtaining a personal protection order. The man that was shot was the woman's friend, according to neighbors. 

A witness says the friend is the father of a 3-year-old girl who was in the apartment at the time of the shooting. She was reportedly uninjured. 

Both the man and woman are listed in stable condition at a local hospital. 

Sources say Quigley is believed to be armed and dangerous. 

Lake Orion Community Schools confirms that Quigley is an assistant middle school wrestling coach within the district. 

The Brandon School District, Clarkston Community Schools, Goodrich Area Schools and Oxford Community Schools are closed for the day due to the ongoing search. 

Lake Orion Community Schools is doing a "soft lockdown" throughout the day until further notice. Police will also be present at the school, according to a statement from the school district. 

The Brandon Public Library will also be closed today.
