(WXYZ) — U.S. Marshals and Highland Park Detectives now believe Kenyel Brown is connected to a sixth killing - a fatal shooting of a man in Highland Park on Tuesday, February 18th.

The Detroit's Most Wanted fugitive and suspect in a double murder in River Rouge in January, Brown is also a person of interest in two recent fatal shootings in Detroit.

According to sources, police believe Brown is connected to the fatal shooting of a 36-year-old man on Minnesota near John R. on the city's east side. The shooting happened Saturday, Feb. 22 around 1:45 a.m.

Police found the victim's body in a back room of the vacant building with a fatal gunshot wound.

Medics responded and pronounced the man dead at the scene.

According to U.S. Marshals, Kenyel Brown is also the person of interest in a shooting at a t-shirt shop on Detroit's east side Thursday night. Police say a 41-year-old man was found inside the location dead from a gunshot wound to the body.

Two weeks ago, we featured Brown as one of Detroit's Most Wanted in connection to a double homicide in River Rouge. Brown is wanted for the deaths of Dorian Patterson and Kimberly Green on Jan. 30. Another victim, a 44-year-old man, was shot and was last listed in critical condition at a local hospital and expected to survive.

The incident happened on Beechwood Street in River Rouge. Brown is also wanted in connection to a killing in River Rouge back in December.

For the January double homicide, Brown is charged with two counts of first-degree premeditated murder, one count of assault with intent to murder, one count of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, one count of firearms possession by a felon, and six counts of felony firearm.

Police say Brown has a lengthy criminal history. Right now, there is a $10,000 reward for any information leading to Brown's arrest.

He was last seen driving a black 2008-2012 Dodge Caravan with Texas license plate NXL – 7787, according to authorities.
