Hunt for gunman who 'killed girl aged 4'

Police have since identified a suspect as 31-year-old Darnell Bitting, issuing a search warrant for his arrest.

The grandmother and the other children in the auto - ages 7, 6 and 3 - were not injured.

The children's mother reported she pulled up in front of a house on Mercer Avenue.

The mom told authorities she got out of the auto and approached the house to retrieve some property.

According to Time, police spokesman Lt. Rick Edwards said that a man came outside with a rifle and fired a shot at the vehicle, hitting the child, while she was sitting in the backseat. When no one answered the door, she broke several windows.

A 4-year-old girl was shot and killed with a rifle during what appears to be a domestic dispute in West Akron.

According to authorities, a man came out of the residence armed with a rifle and fired a shot that hit the auto. The grandmother, who was in the passenger seat at the time, got into the driver's seat and drove the auto down the street. He is charged with murder and using weapons under disability in the shooting death of Janaya Swain. "Described as being 6'3" tall and weighing 240 pounds, Bitting is considered armed and unsafe.

She was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is asked to call detectives at 330-375-2490 or the U.S. Marshals at 866-4WANTED.
