BATON ROUGE, LA - Suspects burst into a Baton Rouge home and shot and killed a 42-year-old woman and shot her nine-year-old daughter six times Friday morning.
A report on WAFB.com said the young girl managed to get to the telephone to call 911 and is currently in critical condition.
Police have been searching for clues but so far have no motive as to why the crime was committed.
Police said the apparent home invasion happened in the 600 block of Beauregard Street near Napoleon around 5:30 a.m. The scene is between WAFB-TV and the Baton Rouge Police Department.
Detectives took surveillance tapes from WAFB-TV to determine whether the station's outdoor security cameras captured any activity related to the crime.
"This just looks like one of those crimes we talk about," said Police Chief Jeff LeDuff. "There's no connection, just no connection at all."
Police said the suspects were described as two black men on bicycles and they are enlisting the public's help to find those responsible.
Police urge neighbors who may have seen something to call them at 389-2000.
The little girl was apparently getting ready to head out for another day of school.
Her backpack was still in the front doorway and papers were scattered about the steps.
