Father shot himself

Police say a man charged with first-degree murder in the death of his daughter is in hospital with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Roopesh Rajkumar, 41, was charged in 11-year-old Riya Rajkumar's death after the girl's body was found in his Brampton, Ont., home shortly after an Amber Alert was issued late Thursday night.

Peel regional police say they were called by Riya's mother after the child's father failed to return her home from her birthday celebrations.

Police say Roopesh was arrested by provincial police shortly after Riya's body was found and was taken to hospital for injuries that were kept secret for several days.

They say the province's police watchdog was notified of his injury, but decided to not investigate the circumstances surrounding it.

Police say Rajkumar is in custody, and will have a court appearance once his doctors say he is well enough.
