MADRID (DPA) - An 18-month-old Spanish baby was on Wednesday fighting for her life after her father shot her in the head, hospital sources said.

The 29-year-old man, a Spaniard of Dominican origin, shot at his daughter while she was in her mother's arms in a park in Torrejon de Ardoz near Madrid on Tuesday.

He then shot and killed himself.

The man was separated from the woman, who accused him of domestic violence, and had been ordered by police not to approach her.

During the conversation in the park, the man reportedly said he wanted to start the relationship anew, and fired at the child when the woman refused.

Hospital sources said the girl was in an extremely serious condition.
