A 16-year-old Ohio girl was fatally shot by her father after he thought she was an intruder breaking into their home, according to a 911 call obtained by NBC News.
The girl, Janae Hairston, died Wednesday at a Columbus hospital about an hour after she was shot in the garage of her parents' home on Piper Bend Drive.
In the eight-minute 911 call, Hairston's mother told a dispatcher that her husband accidentally shot their daughter. The hysterical mother begged for an ambulance as a man in the background said repeatedly, "Breathe, baby."
"My husband made a mistake and shot her because he thought she was an intruder," the mother said. "She was in our garage and my husband just didn’t know what was going on. Oh, my God."
The mother said she thinks the teen was shot in the chest. Both of the parents could be heard asking what the girl was doing in the garage.
Police arrived at the home about six minutes after the call was made.
The Columbus Division of Police said in a tweet that charges have not been filed and the case was forwarded to the Franklin County Prosecutor's Office for review.
The shooting came days after officials said a North Carolina police officer shot his 15-year-old son in the head in what they believe to be an accident.
According to District Attorney Ernie Lee, the teen suffered a life-threatening injury Monday afternoon and was taken to a medical center. The boy was still in critical condition as of Wednesday, the Onslow County Sheriff's Office said.
The unidentified officer works for the Jacksonville Police Department and is on administrative leave.
