The man police suspect of killing a 9-year-old girl during an argument with his ex-girlfriend has turned himself in to Tampa police, authorities said.
Davie Police had been searching for Jody Gordon since Sunday morning, when he allegedly opened fire on a minivan full of people outside an apartment building on the 7300 block of Stirling Road.
Gordon, 41, had been arguing with a woman sitting in the van when he pulled out a gun. One of the at least a half dozen bullets fired hit Mayia Nelson, the woman's young daughter.
In a frantic attempt to flee, the woman drove to a nearby Publix, where she sought help for her daughter.
The girl was rushed to Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital, where she later died.
Police said the woman filed a police report Saturday night after a domestic dispute with Gordon.
Gordon will be charged with first-degree murder and is expected to be transported back to South Florida to face formal charges.
