The U.S. Marshals Service is hunting for a "person of interest" in the killing of a Virginia family of four.

Alexander Hill, a.k.a. "Real Deal," is wanted by the Petersburg Bureau of Police for violation of a protective order, authorities said in a statement Friday. Hill, 47, is also wanted for questioning in the April 19 quadruple homicide.

It was early morning on Saturday when police responded to a home fire in Petersburg. After extinguishing the flames, authorities found the bodies of four people inside and immediately suspected foul play. Investigators have not yet released the names of the deceased. Multiple media outlets have reported the victims as a grandmother and her daughter as well as two children, including a 2-year-old boy. 

Hill, who is considered armed and dangerous, has connections to at least three locations in Virginia: Richmond, Newport News and Virginia Beach. He also has tied to Trinidad. 

Hill is described as 5-foot-8, weighing 195 pounds. He has hazel eyes and a scar on his upper left and right arms and on both of his knees.

The U.S. Marshals are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to Hill’s arrest.'s Cristina Corbin contributed to this report.
