DETROIT (AP) -

Authorities say a 6-month-old girl slain in Detroit over the weekend was shot in the back.

The Detroit News reports Monday that the Wayne County medical examiner's office says the infant's death has been ruled a homicide.

It was not immediately known Monday if charges have been filed against two men detained for questioning in connection with the shooting Saturday that also left a 24-year-old man wounded.

Police say the infant was in a yard with adults and other children outside a home in northwest Detroit when a man started shooting. He later fled in a car.

Police have said the shooting appears to be gang-related and may be connected to the fatal shooting of a 3-year-old girl on Easter Sunday.
