A Louisiana man suspected of killing two people Monday afternoon was killed in a police shootout after escaping the scene with a baby on his lap and driving to Mississippi.

Biloxi police chief John Miller told the media that 30-year-old Eric Derell Smith died Monday afternoon. Smith’s four-month-old daughter was rushed to the hospital, The Advocate reported.

Representatives from the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office answered a “hang up” call to 911 at around 11:30 am Monday on the 2000 block of Richmond Street in Baker, Louisiana, about 11 miles north of Baton Rouge.

When the officers arrived at the scene, they found two people who had been killed in an apparent shooting. The suspect had escaped from the scene with a young child.

“At the moment our top priority is to safely locate this child,” Sheriff Sid Gautreaux said in a statement.

Smith was arrested on I-10 in Mississippi and the police caused a shootout, WLOX reported. Smith reportedly held the boy on his lap when he shot the police while they were chasing him.

Authorities said the shooting resulted from a domestic accident that involved two family members.
