Cleveland (AP) -- Special police teams and a helicopter in Ohio are searching for an ex-convict suspected of killing his wife, his sister-in-law and her three young children.

Police at a news conference in Cleveland said Friday that they have not located 33-year-old Davon Crawford.

He was freed in 2007 after serving separate prison terms for voluntary manslaughter and felony assault involving domestic violence.

A Cleveland Police spokesman says Crawford "made it clear he's not going back to prison."

A relative says the Crawfords had just married. An infant found unharmed in the home is believed to be theirs.

Officials said a fifth child was wounded and was being treated at a hospital.

Police Chief Michael McGrath says it appears that a domestic dispute sparked the shootings.
