UPDATE: Police Looking For The Father of 8-Year-Old Girl Shot and Killed Sunday

The child showed up at a fire station on 38th St.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Police are searching for the father of an 8-year-old girl as they seek answers about her Sunday shooting death. 

The girl was shot in a bedroom of a home along Culver Street before the girl's mother drove her about a half-mile to a fire station, along East 38th Street around 5:40 Sunday afternoon, say Indianapolis Metro Police.

IMPD believes believe Kendall Brye is the girl's father and was in the home at the time of the shooting, along with his 3-year-old son and the girl's mother.

The girl's mother did not witness the shooting but took the girl to the fire station and went with her by ambulance to Riley Hospital for Children. That's where the girl died.

Brye fled the house on Culver Street with his 3-year-old son, who was later dropped off at Riley Hospital for Children by family members, police said. Now Brye is missing and they believe he is driving a gray or silver 2016 Dodge Charger with license plate IP1340.

Police say they want to speak to Brye because they are missing key evidence and don't know whether the shooting was an accident or a homicide. If you have any information about where Brye is or what happened, call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-TIPS.
