INKSTER, Mich. (AP) -- The death of a 2-year-old Detroit-area girl has been ruled a homicide after an autopsy confirmed a gunshot wound to her head.
 
The girl was shot on the porch of a home in Inkster in what police describe as a case of retaliation.
 
The Wayne County medical examiner's office says an autopsy was performed Wednesday, a day after the shooting.
 
State police say the toddler's name is Kamiya Gross. But Mary Mazur of the medical examiner's office says the girl's mother identified her as Kamiya French.
 
A suspect is in custody. The girl's father and a 12-year-old girl were also shot and are in a hospital.
