Authorities say an 18-month-old girl has been shot and killed while riding in a car in the US Virgin Islands.

Governor Kenneth Mapp said on Thursday that police have offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspects, who are being sought.

He says the shooting occurred late Wednesday on the island of St. Thomas.

The driver of the car in which the toddler was a passenger also was injured.

Mapp has asked US federal officials to help in the investigation.
