SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Police in Puerto Rico say a man killed his 5-year-old daughter and then committed suicide in what they described as a domestic violence case.

Authorities identified the man as Manuel Pimentel and said his ex-girlfriend had requested a restraining order against him.

They said Pimentel shot the girl shortly after telling his ex-girlfriend about his plans.

The killing occurred Thursday in the San Juan working class neighborhood of Santurce.
