HILLSBORO, OH (FOX19) -

A 35-year old man killed his one-year-old daughter before killing himself in Hillsboro Friday afternoon. 

A 911 call was received at 3:14 p.m. of reports that someone was shooting in the area of Trenton Street in Highland County. 

When deputies arrived on the scene, they were met by a female who advised that the shooter was dead and that he had shot their daughter, according to a press release from the Highland County Sheriff's Office.

Initial investigation revealed that Timoth Harewood went inside the home, got the gun, shot the one-year-old child, then went outside to where the mother and family were sitting. 

Officials said Harewood went over to his girlfriend, struck her in the face and attempted to shoot her. 

Witnesses said that the gun misfired and Harewood then turned the gun upon himself and released a fatal shot. 

The incident is still under investigation.
