ST. LOUIS (AP) — An 8-month-old boy is dead after a shooting in north St. Louis, and police are searching for the father who is the suspected gunman.

Police are continuing to search for 34-year-old Diata R. Crockett, who is wanted in the death of Reign Crockett.

Police say the boy’s two young brothers were found safe.

The 8-month-old boy died in his mother’s arms along a St. Louis interstate highway in what police characterized as a domestic dispute that began at their St. Louis County home.

Investigators are searching for a black 2014 Hyundai Sonata with Illinois license plate V446952.
