BAKERSFIELD (AP) — Bakersfield police are searching for suspects involved in the fatal shooting of a 2-year-old girl, who was struck by a stray bullet from a nearby argument.
Police say the child was playing in the front yard of a home around 7 p.m. Monday when the argument broke out on the street between two groups of men.
A stray bullet struck the toddler in the chest. She was taken to the hospital, where she later died.
Authorities identified her Tuesday as Ka-mya Denise Robinson.
Lt. Joe Mullins says some of the suspects fled in an SUV, and the others ran down the street.
Investigators don't know what started the argument or whether both sides fired shots. A reward of $5,000 is being offered for information leading to arrests in the case.
