CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Authorities are searching for a man accused of fatally shooting a man and wounding his 19-year-old daughter in Carson City.

Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong says the shooting early Saturday morning in east Carson City may stem from a domestic conflict

He says the suspect, 22-year-old Michael Rentlinger, was recently in the Carson City Jail on charges stemming from an alleged assault against the female victim in the shooting.

Deputies arrived at the scene to find a dead man and his daughter with a gunshot wound to the head. She was taken to a Reno hospital, where her condition was not immediately released.

Rentlinger fled the scene in a white Chevrolet Cavalier and is believed to be armed and dangerous.

The victims' names were not immediately released.
