A young girl is fighting for her life in hospital after she was shot in the head by her father on Thursday, who is also believed to have killed himself, it has been reported.

According to Metro UK, villagers in Northiam, near Rye, East Sussex, said the man turned up at his ex-partner’s home before opening fire at about 4pm.

Armed officers who went to the scene amid reports the gunman was at large found a man’s body in a car parked outside.

Sussex Police said the girl – described to be of primary school age – is in a life-threatening condition with a gunshot wound in King’s College Hospital, London.

Chief Superintendent Neil Honnor, Sussex Police’s divisional commander for East Sussex, said: ‘We are treating this as a tragic domestic incident and do not believe that anyone else is involved.

‘At this stage we are not in a position to confirm the relationships of all those involved but we can say that the girl and the man knew each other. The man does not live at the address.

‘We are treating this as an isolated incident and there is no evidence that any other members of the public are at risk
