FORT WASHINGTON, Md. (WUSA9) – The man accused of shooting and killing his two-year-old daughter and her mother has admitted to their murders, Prince George's County police said.   

According to Prince George's County police, Daron Boswell-Johnson, 25, of Forestville was arrested Tuesday and charged with the double murder.

Around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, police found Davis suffering from gunshot wounds in a parking lot outside of her Fort Washington condo building. She lived in Pinewood Hill Condos, where she was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Her two-year-old daughter Chloe was also shot. She was found strapped in a car seat nearby. 

Chloe was taken to a hospital where she later died.

Boswell-Johnson has been charged with two counts of first-degree and second-degree murder. He is expected to be held on no bond. 

In December, a Prince George's County judge ordered toddler's dad to pay $600 a month in child support. According to charging documents, Boswell-Johnson waited for Davis to leave her condo before approaching her at gunpoint and demanding she drop the petition for child support payments. 

Neighbors told WUSA9 that Davis was in a custody dispute over her daughter. They heard arguing before three shots were fired.

Davis was an elementary school teacher in Capitol Heights at Bradbury Heights Elementary School. The school is helping people cope with the tragedy. 

Davis' pastor, Bishop Robert Pitts, said, "It's not over yet. God has his eye on him. I believe justice will be served."
