TEMPLE HILLS, Md. (AP) — Maryland police say a 3-year-old girl died from wounds received during a shootout between authorities and the man driving a car she was in.

Police said the man shot at officers and six officers returned fire on two occasions Saturday in Temple Hills, killing him the second time.

After the shooting stopped, officers found the girl in the car, suffering from a gunshot wound. She died later Saturday.

Polices say the man had led them on a chase after shooting and critically wounding two people in Camp Springs. They said they believe the victims are the girl’s maternal grandfather and great-grandmother.

Starting next month, America’s remaining tobacco growers will be totally exposed to the laws of supply and demand. The very last buyout checks go out in October to about 425,000 tobacco farmers and landowners. They’re the last holdovers from a price-support and quota system that had guaranteed minimum prices for most of the 20th century, sustaining a way of life that began 400 years ago in Virginia.
