NEW YORK (WTHR) – Police in New York are investigating a deadly attack with an ax.

They say this was a domestic situation.

A 20-year-old woman was killed and a mother was seriously hurt. Her 4-year-old daughter inside the apartment where this happened was not hurt.

Police say an Uber driver actually called 911 when he saw her outside.

"We are trying to reach out to the family to see if they need any help with burial funds," said Maritza Davila. "Usually in a situation like this, people are definitely not prepared to bury someone that's so young."

The father of the little girl was arrested.

Police say they found the ax in the building's trash compactor room.
