Two men have been arrested in connection to a front porch shooting in Louisville last week that left a toddler dead and her mother injured.
Michael Dunn, 24, and Trey Anderson, 20, are charged with murder, attempted murder and wanton endangerment.
Not many details have been released about the case and the men’s roles or motive in the shooting are not clear.
The family of 16-month-old Ne’riah Miller said they were receiving death threats due to increased police presence in the neighborhood since the shooting on Aug. 27.
Ne’riah was being held by her mother when she was shot and killed with a gunshot wound to the torso. The mother is still recovering from a gunshot wound to the stomach. Her injuries are considered non-life threatening.
A family member said that a man approached the porch before 6 p.m. and shot both the mother and child before fleeing.
Originally, police believed it was a drive-by shooting, but have since determined the gunman was on foot.
