BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- A Birmingham man is being held in the shooting death of his 2-year-old nephew.

Police said 24-year-old Andre Boykins Jr. was arrested Saturday in Prattville. The arrest came after 2-year-old Nazario Boykins was shot and his mother was wounded early Saturday. The child was pronounced dead at a Birmingham hospital.

Police said an attempted murder warrant was used to arrest Andre Boykins , but they anticipate upgrading the charge because of the death. They said a domestic dispute led to the shootings.
