(CBS/AP) SARASOTA, Fla. - Police in Sarasota, Fla. say a mother shot her 1-year-old daughter and then turned the gun on herself.

Police say they responded to the murder-suicide Sunday morning. Spokeswoman Genevieve Judge says 35-year-old Sarah Harnish died at the scene. Josephine Boice, who was 17 months old, was taken to the hospital and later died.

A police statement says the child's father returned home from a scooter ride before 10 a.m. and heard shots fired and called 911.

No one else was inside the home when it happened. Police say a report won't be available until Tuesday.
