DETROIT (AP) -

Police say two men have been detained for questioning after a 6-month-old girl was fatally shot as she was with others outside a Detroit house.

Detroit Officer Dan Donakowski says the unidentified child was killed when a gunman came around some bushes, opened fire and then escaped in a car. A 24-year-old man also was injured and was in stable condition. It wasn't clear the relationship between the girl and the injured man.

The girl was among other children who apparently were outside the house.

"It appears to be gang related," Donakowski said, adding that it may be connected to the fatal shooting of a 3-year-old girl on Easter Sunday. He gave no other details.

The two men in custody are "persons of interest," Donakowski said.
