(MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Mo.) — A man suspected of killing five people have been taken into custody, police say.

Pablo Antonio Serrano-Vitorino is charged with four counts of first degree murder in conjunction with a quadruple homicide which happened on March 7.

He’s also wanted for questioning relating to a homicide that took place in Central Montgomery County, Missouri, on March 8.

Serrano-Vitorino had been living in Kansas City, Kansas, after being deported back to Mexico in April 2004, according to authorities.

Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said in a statement, “Mr. Serrano-Vitorino illegally re-entered the United States on an unknown date. ICE will continue to monitor this case and will place a detainer on Mr. Serrano-Vitorino if he is taken into local custody. ICE remains focused on smart, effective immigration enforcement that prioritizes threats to national security, public safety and border security. Mr. Serrano-Vitorino was fingerprinted Sept. 14, 2015 at the Overland Park Municipal Court, which generated the issuance of an ICE detainer. Further records checks indicate that ICE erroneously issued the detainer to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, instead of to the Overland Park Municipal Court. Mr. Serrano-Vitorino was not in Johnson County custody on Sept. 14, 2015.””

A manhunt involving 60-100 Missouri State Highway Patrol and local agencies took place Tuesday, according to Lt. Justin McCullough from Missouri State Highway Patrol.
