MIAMI — Police say a 4-year-old girl was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting in Miami.

In a statement, police spokesman Michael Vega said officers were called to Miami’s Liberty Square housing complex Saturday morning about a child that had been shot.

The 4-year-old had already been taken to a hospital by her mother by the time officers arrived. Vega said the girl died at the hospital.

Police said another child and an adult were injured at the scene by shattered glass.

Vega said a male suspect who fled the scene later turned himself in at a police station.

Police have not released the names of either the girl or the suspect.

Vega said the motive for the shooting remained unclear.
