DETROIT – A small Winnie the Pooh bear sits outside a home where a 3-year-old girl was shot and killed.

Bullet holes riddled the home. The child was inside in her mother's arms when she was shot twice. Neighbors said the woman was inconsolable

The child died on the way to the hospital. 

The shooting happened early Sunday at a home near Telegraph Road just north of I-96.

Two adults were also shot. A 26-year-old man is expected to recover and a 38-year-old man is in critical condition.

Detroit police said the deadly shooting may be connected to an earlier shooting.

Around 2 a.m. Sunday, a 24-year-old man was shot near 6 Mile and Telegraph roads. He was only grazed by the bullet and refused treatment.

The shooting may have been in retaliation and ended with a toddler dead.
