Detroit Police release sketch of suspect in 6 month-old's shooting death

- The Detroit Police Department has put out a sketch of the man they say shot and killed 6-month-old Miracle Murray over the weekend.

Police say the sketch, above, is of a man they say shot and killed the infant and shot a 24-year-old man as well. Police say the shooter is a 24-year-old man with hazel eyes. He was wearing dark pants, dark shirt, and black and white hat.

Miracle was one of three babies playing in the front yard of a house on Winthrop Street when an older model silver Saturn started circling the block.

According to family members, they believe the girl was shot intentionally in retaliation for the shooting death of 3-year-old A'Naiya Montgomery on Easter Sunday. Miracle's cousin, Tia, was at the house on Winthrop during the drive-by shooting, and says the family had been receiving death threats in the days before the shooting.

Police said there were three men inside and at some point, shots were fired at the children ages 4, 6, and 11 months. Murray was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Police had originally arrested two suspects but released them shortly after, saying they both had alibis for the time of the shooting.
