A missing child was turned over to police shortly after an Amber Alert was issued around 6:10 p.m. July 13.

The alert was issued for a 1-year-old girl who officials said was abducted at gunpoint by her father. 

According to Deputy Chief Nick Loussia, of the Southfield Police Department, the child’s father turned her over to police around 7:45 p.m. at the Southfield Police Department. 

Loussia said the child was not harmed. 

“Child Protective Services made a determination to return the child to her mother, and the father was not arrested,” Loussia said. “He was interviewed, and the investigation is ongoing.” 

Police believe the abduction could be connected to a shooting that occurred earlier that day around 2 p.m. in a parking lot near Providence Hospital. 

Loussia said that the shooting is still under investigation, and several people are being interviewed so police can ascertain what actually happened. 

Nobody was injured in the shooting, Loussia said. 

“We do not know what initiated the shooting or who was involved at this time,” Loussia said.
