A toddler was shot to death in Prichard on Saturday.

Investigators named 22-year-old Damion Little as the suspect in the shooting that killed the young boy and injured the 23-year-old mother.

Charges have been upgraded against Damion Little for the murder of his 3-year-old son in Prichard. Little now faces 2 counts of Capital Murder in the death of Damion Little, Jr.

The second count states that Little was outside the house and fired into the house, killing Damion Little, Jr.

Alabama state law allows for capital murder charges to be filed if the victim is under the age of 14. Little could now face the death penalty or life in prison without parole.

He is set for a bond hearing Tuesday morning in Mobile District court.
