Here is what we know.

ATLANTA — Police are searching for two suspects they believe were involved in a shooting that left a daughter dead and a mother injured outside of a northwest Atlanta apartment complex.

According to Atlanta Police, the shooting happened in the 200 block of Harwell Place around 1:35 a.m. on Tuesday.

Authorities said the incident started after an earlier argument between the mother and another unknown woman outside of the apartment complex. One of the women called a man after the argument who arrived and shot the victims, police said.

"There was a fight earlier this evening outside of the apartments. From that fight, other people were encouraged to participate in the shooting. They were contacted and called over here -- which brings us to the shooting ... both victims were shot," police told 11Alive.

Four shell casings were found on the scene.

Police said the two victims were both taken to Grady Hospital where the 30-year-old daughter later died. The 45-year-old woman is in stable condition.
