Prince George's County officers responded to the report of a double-shooting in Temple Hills on Saturday. Both victims have life-threatening injuries and were taken to the hospital, police said.

While police were still at the scene of the shooting, they started pursuing the suspected gunman, Frederick Roy Miller, 38, who was driving a Nissan Altima, authorities said.

Miller exchanged gunfire with police at two locations during the chase before he was shot and killed.

Police found Miller's 3-year-old girl daughter in the car suffering from gunshot wounds. Based on the investigation, Miller stabbed and shot his daughter, who was taken to the hospital where she died.

Authorities said the 3-year-old girl's mother was not at the scene of the shooting and was not hurt. The girl's mother had custody of her daughter, police said.

Police said none of the six officers involved in the shootout was injured.

The involved Prince George's County officers have been identified as: Officer Alba De Jesus, Corporal Clarence Black, Officer Brett Fairbrother, Corporal Paul Schweinsburg, and Officer Christopher Gehlhausen. Maryland State Police Master Trooper Williard Shelton was also involved in the shootout.

All of the officers and the trooper are on routine administrative leave, authorities said.

The shooting and a motive remain under investigation, police said.
