NEW YORK - Authorities are looking for a suspect in the fatal shooting of a New York City man who was gunned down while 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 a street in the Bronx borough of the city. 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 - holding his 1-year-old daughter - 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 but police believe McQueen was targeted, reports CBS New York.
