Rove Beetle?

Found this in Grand Haven Michigan in a wood pile. At first I thought it was some sort of larva, but realized it has wings. This thing had me confused for a few minutes. I am thinking it is some species of rove beetle.

 

Assuming it is carnivorous for now.

Yes, it is indeed a rove beetle, my guess is Platydracus maculosus, see here: http://bugguide.net/node/view/14441

 

Live, soft bodied prey like small crickets/roaches or mealworms should work nicely as a diet. :)
