Two Dead In Murder And Suicide

Sarasota, Fla.-(970 WFLA)-Police say a woman shot her 17 month-old baby at her home in the 4000 block of Old Bradenton Road and then turned the gun her way.  

Officers say the baby's father returned to his home to hear gunfire and called 911.  When officers arrived they found 35 year-old Sarah Harnish dead and little Josephine Boice wounded. The baby was rushed to All Children's hospital, where she later died.

Police are looking for a motive in the shooting, but are calling it a murder and a suicide.  At least one neighbor reports that Harnish appeared to be in a down mood recently.
