SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Louisiana authorities have identified the victims of a shooting in Shreveport that left a man injured and his toddler daughter dead.

Police Cpl. Marcus Hines tells news outlets that they're looking for a suspect, 19-year-old Ta'Darious Upshaw, who will face a charge of aggravated assault with a firearm.

Hines says police responded Friday about 5:30 p.m. and found two victims inside a car. He says 22-year-old Roderick Robinson and his 2-year-old daughter, Kynsley, were shot. Robinson was hit in the lower leg; Kynsley was struck in the head and later died at Ochsner LSU Health.
