UPDATE AT 4:27 P.M.: Las Vegas police say the child has been located safely. The suspect and vehicle have not been found.

UPDATE AT 2:47 P.M.: Police named 36-year-old Eduardo Rozada-Tamayo as the suspect in this case. He is being charged with kidnapping his daughter and shooting the mother of his child.

Officials say he is a Hispanic male, 5 feet 4 inches tall, 190 pounds, and has black hair with black eyes. He was last seen wearing dark jeans and a white t-shirt.

Eduardo is suspected of kidnapping his child, Angie, who is a 4-year-old Hispanic female with brown hair and brown eyes. 

The vehicle involved in the kidnapping is a newer black Toyota RAV4 with a luggage rack, a temporary plate in the upper left-hand corner of the rear window, and a red and white dealer placard in the license plate holder.

Anyone who sees Eduardo or Angie should call 911. Do not approach the suspect, as he is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone else with information on this case should call 311.

UPDATE AT 12:30 P.M.: The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department says the woman was shot two times, one being to the head.

UMC Trauma says that it is a "non-survivable injury" and that she is being kept alive by machines for the time being.

Both the woman and the suspect are parents of the child. Police have confirmed that the suspect has the child with him. A description of the child and the suspect is not available at this time.

LVMPD officers are checking out several addresses for the suspect, as he apparently has a criminal history.

Police are also speaking with family members. If they do not locate the suspect and the child within the next few hours, they will likely issue an Amber Alert.
