TEMPLE HILLS, Md. (WNEW) — Prince George’s County police say a 3-year-old girl has died after she was stabbed and shot by her father.

Police say they responded to the 4200 block of Farmer Place, Camp Springs, just before 1 p.m. Saturday and found two adults suffering from gunshot wounds. A pursuit began when the suspect, driving a Nissan Altima, was located by police.

Police say the suspect briefly stopped at Beech Road and Branch Avenue after his car lost a wheel, where an exchange of gunfire occurred. He then continued driving down Branch Avenue.

The suspect stopped again in the 4600 block of Branch Avenue in Temple Hills, where a second exchange of gunfire occurred. Police say the suspect was shot and killed by officers.

The man has been identified by police as 38-year-old Frederick Roy Miller, of Landover.

Police then found a 3-year-old girl suffering from gunshot wounds in the Miller’s car. The girl, who is believed to be Miller’s daughter, was taken to a local hospital where she later died from her injuries.

Officials say Miller stabbed and shot his daughter, based on the initial reports from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

The two adults found shot in Camp Springs are the child’s grandfather and great-grandmother, who are the 3-year-old’s caretakers. They are listed in critical condition.

The girl’s mother was not on the scene of the shooting, and was found unharmed.

Officials say no officers were injured during the incident.

Authorities say six police officers were involved in the shootout with Miller.

The five Prince George’s County officers involved are identified as patrol officer Alba De Jesus, a 2-year veteran, Corporal Clarence Black, a 12-year-veteran, patrol officer Brett Fairbrother, a 1-year veteran, Corporal Paul Schweinsburg, a 7-year veteran, and patrol officer Christopher Gehlhausen, a 3-year veteran.

The one Maryland State Trooper involved is identified as Master Trooper Williard Shelton, a 17-year veteran. All are on routine administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
