American father shot daughter mistaking her for an intruder
On the 29th of December, a Columbus father shot his 16 year old mistaking her for an intruder after the security alarm of their house was activated. The 16 year old’s mother called 911 after the shooting and confirmed that the father had shot someone he thought was an intruder as the security alarm of the house was activated.
Subsequently, the daughter was identified as Janae Hairston as the parents begged for the girl to wake up during the 911 call. Janae was taken to the hospital; however, she was pronounced dead. On the other hand, the Ohio police are still investigating the incident but no charges against the father have been filed yet. The Ohio police officers arrived five minutes after the 911 call.
Janae Hairston was a junior at Canal Winchester High School. On the other hand, this is the 7th homicide reported in Columbus, Ohio, within a week and the third in three days.
