NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities are looking for a suspect in the fatal shooting of a Bronx man who was carrying his 1-year-old daughter in his arms. The child sustained a minor injury.

Police said it happened around 1:20 p.m. Tuesday on Taylor Avenue. Officers responding to an emergency call found the 21-year-old man, identified as Allen McQueen. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Authorities said the gunman had approached and shot at McQueen, missing him. McQueen ran and the gunman fired again, hitting him in the back before fleeing in a car.

Witnesses said the child was picked up by an onlooker when McQueen fell. Police said she was released from the hospital with a bump on her head.

There have been no arrests. Authorities are investigating.
