DETROIT (AP) - Detroit police say two people are in custody in connection with a shooting in a home that killed a young child, seriously injured a man and hurt two others.

Chief James Craig told reporters that the child, about two or three years old, died Thursday afternoon after being rushed to a hospital. He says the wounded man, possibly the child’s father, also was in the home on the city’s east side.

Two women also were hurt.

Craig says a young man and woman have been arrested but investigators believe there are four more suspects. He said the shooting was gang-related and could be connected to a shooting earlier Thursday at a nearby high school in which one person was shot.

Craig says he doesn’t know what caused the dispute.
