MORENO VALLEY, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a 6-year-old girl is dead and her 26-year-old father is injured after they were shot at a family party in Riverside County.
The Sheriff's Department said investigators on Sunday had identified no motive or suspects in the shootings.
Sheriff's and coroner's officials say 6-year-old Tiana Ricks of Victorville and her father Tyrell Ricks Jr. were shot late Saturday night at their home in Moreno Valley northwest of Lake Perris.
The two were taken to Riverside County Regional Medical Center, where Tiana was declared dead.
Her father's condition was listed only as stable.
LeShawn Cook, a relative of the victims, tells the Riverside Press-Enterprise she was hosting the family gathering celebrating her daughter's departure to college when the gunfire broke out.
