NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police have arrested a 24-year-old man in connection with the shooting death of a toddler.
Police said that Keelen Armstrong has been booked with first-degree murder in the slaying of 13-month-old Londyn Samuels. He was also booked with attempted first-degree murder.

The Times-Picayune newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/1cHZxIf ) that police said Armstrong was pulled over Wednesday morning during a traffic stop. Officers discovered outstanding warrants and brought him to jail, where detectives determined that he was a suspect in the girl's death.

Police Superintendent Ronal Serpas, speaking at a Wednesday news conference, said detectives believe there is at least one more person responsible for the shooting.

The child was being held by an 18-year-old baby-sitter who was wounded in the Thursday night shooting. She was expected to survive.
