At about 8:20 p.m. Oct. 28, the suspects drove by a home in the 3900 block of Bedford in a dark vehicle and opened fire, striking the child, investigators reported.

The victim, identified as Reginae Williams, had been sleeping on a couch in the living room, relatives said.

The slaying prompted the city's police chief and mayor to condemn the violence.

On Monday, a 19-year-old man was taken into custody near Hildale and Justine, police said.

They continue to search for a second suspect, identified as Christion Mitchell-Childress, 22.
