CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said a baby has been found safe after a deadly shooting.

However, investigators are still looking for 23-year-old, Jonathan Bennett, who was last seen driving an older, white Ford Expedition with New York license plates HUP3071.

Shortly after 2 p.m. officers responded to Carlyle Drive and discovered the body of 24-year-old, Brittany White.

Detectives said Bennett took his daughter, Journei Bennett, with him. An Amber Alert was issued briefly, but around 5:30 p.m., police tweeted the child had been found safe.

Journei was taken to Bennett's grandmother's house in north Charlotte. Police told WCNC another child had been found on the scene of the homicide unharmed.

WCNC checked into Bennett's criminal history. He's been charged in the past with assault on a female, communicating threats and misdemeanor larceny.

Thursday night, neighbors begged Bennett to turn himself in.

"I'm at a loss for words. I don't understand why you did what you did. You could've talked it out or came and talked to me," said Vincent Tillery.

If you have any information call 911, or Crimestoppers at 704-334-1600 or visit the Crime Stoppers website.
