By The Associated Press

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) ' Police say the suspect in seven Michigan shooting deaths has released one of two people he's been holding hostage during a standoff with officers.

The 53-year-old female hostage was released unharmed Thursday night. Grand Rapids Police Chief Kevin Belk says second hostage also is uninjured.

Belk says police are communicating with the suspect, 34-year-old Rodrick Shonte Dantzler.

A manhunt for Dantzler began after four people were found dead in one Grand Rapids home and three were found in another across town. Belk now says the dead included two children.

The frantic search included a high-speed chase through downtown Grand Rapids during which Belk says the suspect shot two other people. They did not suffer life-threatening injuries.
