SARASOTA (CBSMiami/AP) — Police in Sarasota said a mother shot her child and then turned the gun on herself.

The child was just 10-months-old.

Police said they responded to the murder-suicide Sunday morning.

Spokeswoman Genevieve Judge says the unidentified mother was 35 years old.

The mother died at the scene.

The girl was taken to the hospital and later died.

A police statement says the child’s father returned home from a scooter ride before 10 a.m. and heard shots fired and called 911.

No one else was inside the home when it happened.

Police said a report won’t be available until Tuesday.
