A Columbus, Ohio father shot and killed his 16-year-old daughter after mistaking her for an intruder, according to a 911 call.
The teenager, who police identified as Janae Hairston, was inside the family’s garage shortly before 4:30 a.m. Wednesday when her father fired his gun at her, NBC News reported.
“My husband made a mistake and shot her because he thought she was an intruder,” the girl’s frantic mom told a 911 dispatcher, according to NBC.
“She was in our garage and my husband just didn’t know what was going on. Oh my God!”
NBC said the father, who has yet to be identified, can be heard in the background of the 911 call pleading, “Breathe baby.”
Police said that the girl was rushed to Mount Carmel East Hospital, where she died around at 5:40 a.m.
So far, no charges have been filed.
