DETROIT (AP) - Authorities say they have released two people held in the killing of a 7-year-old girl in Detroit.

Police said Thursday a woman described as “a person of interest” and a man who is “a possible suspect” were freed. The woman turned herself in and the man was arrested in connection with the Sunday shooting into a home that killed the girl and injured an 8-year-old girl.

Investigators say someone fired a gun into the northwest side home. There was a party, a fight broke out and someone left and returned with a gun.

State law says suspects can be held for up to 72 hours without charges. The Wayne County Medical Examiner ruled the girl’s death was a homicide.

Prosecutors returned a warrant request to police for further investigation.
