DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in Florida say a man has been arrested after shooting a 5-month girl and a 10-year-old boy, killing the grade-schooler.

Police officers say they arrested Terrance Young on Thursday less than two hours after he fled the scene of the shootings in Daytona Beach.

Authorities say Young shot both children with a rifle, but the motive wasn't clear. The boy was pronounced dead shortly after he was taken to a nearby hospital, and the infant girl was taken to a children's hospital in Orlando.

Young was being held on outstanding warrants from Volusia and Miami-Dade counties.
