After being abducted by her father, baby girl is fatally shot

Authorities have issued Amber Alert for a 1-year-old girl in the fear that she might be abducted by her father.

Jaquari Bennett was confirmed by the Georgia Bureau of Investigations on Sunday morning. The Newton County Sheriff's Office will continue to investigate.

WXIA was told by a member of the sheriff’s office that Jaquari was killed and shot by Darian Javaris Bennett, her father. Jaquari then committed suicide.

WXIA reported that Bennett is also suspected to have murdered Jaqauri’s mother, before abducting her.

The Newton County Sheriff's Office didn't immediately respond to NBC News Sunday's request for comment.

After Jaqauri was reported missing late Saturday, authorities issued an Amber Alert. Bennett was identified as Bennett's potential abductor. He was driving a 2000 Honda Accord.

According to the alert, she was in severe danger.
