A 20-year-old Florida man was arrested Friday after he allegedly shot the mother of his 2-year-old daughter and her mother. 

Radrick Francois, 20, is accused of fatally shooting Tanga Owens, 20, and her mother Tanishia Starr, 39, late Friday morning while they were inside a car outside an Orlando apartment complex, according to Orange County Police.
