Authorities arrested a 31-year-old man who allegedly shot and killed a 4-year-old girl in a domestic dispute in Akron, Ohio.
Darnell Bitting is charged with murder and using weapons under disability in the shooting, which took place outside of a home Friday evening, according to police.
The medical examiner’s office identified the little girl as Janay Swain, according to ABC-affiliate News 5 Cleveland.
Officers responded to a shooting on the 900 block of Mercer Avenue Friday.
Four children — ages 7, 6, 4, and 3 — were seated inside a car with their grandmother.

The children’s mother told police she had visited the house to retrieve her belongings. No one answered the door and she broke out some of the home’s windows, police said.
A man with a rifle emerged from the residence and fired at the car.
The grandmother, who was in the passenger seat, climbed into the driver’s seat and drove away from the home, but not before the 4-year-old was struck by a bullet.
She was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.
