Mom, Young Daughter Fatally Shot in West Palm Beach, Police Searching for Suspect

Police in Florida say an 11-year-old girl and her 36-year-old mother are dead following a shooting.

West Palm Beach Sgt. Dennis Hardiman tells local news outlets that officers responding to reports of gunfire on Thursday night found Kaladaa Crowell dead inside a house. Her daughter was taken to a hospital where she died early Friday.

Authorities believe the shooting stemmed from a domestic incident. Investigators say they are searching for a suspect, but they haven't released that person's relationship to the woman and girl.

Detectives were questioning neighbors who heard the gunshots and called 911.

No additional details have been released.
