HOUSTON (AP) — Police are searching for a 23-year-old man who's wanted for questioning in the shooting deaths of a woman and her baby daughter in their Houston home.

Authorities said in a statement Monday that it's believed Jonathan Figueroa is heading to the Mexican border in a maroon Ford Taurus.

Figueroa has not been charged in the matter and police say he's seen only as a person of interest.

Twenty-six-year-old Veronica Mercado and her daughter were shot multiple times Friday. Mercado was found still holding the child, who would have turned 2 later this month.

The home's front door had been forced open.

Police said earlier that they were seeking Mercado's boyfriend and that the two had a history of domestic violence. They declined to confirm Monday if Figueroa is the boyfriend.
