Police: Landover man took selfie with daughter, 3, before killing her

LANDOVER, Md. - A Landover man took a selfie photo with his 3-year-old daughter moments before killing her and engaging in exchanges of gunfire with police that led to his own death.

Prince George’s County police said there is no doubt in their minds that Frederick Miller stabbed and shot the girl, Laila, in his car.

Miller would die in the vehicle, too, a short time later in a shootout with officers. Police began pursuing Miller on Saturday after responding to the scene of a shooting in Camp Springs where the girl's caretakers, her maternal grandfather and great-grandmother, were critically wounded.

During the chase, Miller shot at officers on two occasions before being killed in temple hills. The 3-year-old was found dead in his car afterwards by officers.
