Man Shoots Infant

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) _ An Orlando man is facing an aggravated battery charge in the shooting of a 1-year-old girl in the upper torso.

Authorities don't yet know whether he or another suspect, who is at large, was the gunman.

Adam Fountain, who has a criminal history, is an ex-boyfriend of the infant's mother.

Tameka Rucker told authorities she was napping when she woke up to a loud bang and found her daughter bleeding on the flood.

The girl, Janiah Thorne, is in serious condition at an area hospital.
