A 2-year-old girl has died after what police are calling a domestic dispute in Augusta.

The deadly shooting happened Tuesday night at a home in the city.

Deputies say a man got into an argument with the girl's mother. During the fight, investigators say he opened fire on the woman's home and car, eventually hitting the child.

The girl was taken to a nearby hospital where she died.

The Richmond County Sheriff's Office said the suspected gunman is now in custody and is not related to the toddler.

The investigation is continuing.
