RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a 37-year old man has abducted his 5-year old daughter after shooting the girl's mother in Temecula.
Riverside County Sheriff's Investigator Matt Diaz tells KFWB radio that Jesus Cardona shot the 43-year old woman in the torso early Saturday and fled with their daughter, Kaylee Cardona, in a dark blue Lincoln Continental.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, which is carrying an Amber Alert over the abduction, says Cardona may be armed and could be headed toward Mexico.
Authorities say Kaylee has long brown hair and was last seen wearing purple pajamas.
