The shooting took place just before 10 p.m. at an apartment complex at 404 Oxford Street and also involved a child.
HPD said an argument between a man and a woman escalated. Then the man fired gunshots, hitting the mother in the arm.
One bullet also hit her 9-year-old daughter in the head. The little girl was taken to a nearby hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
There was also a toddler in the apartment, but we’re told the baby was not hurt. The baby is now with family members, police said.
Police say the male friend is considered a suspect and they are actively looking for him this morning.
