Authorities in Ohio say a 16-year-old high school girl was fatally shot by her father after being mistaken for an intruder.

The incident occurred near Canal Winchester, roughly 15 miles from Columbus, in the early hours of Wednesday morning, Dec. 29.

A 911 caller claimed that someone had been shot in their house after the security system went off at 4:30 a.m., according to police.

The caller has been identified as the teen’s mother, who can be heard on the recording informing investigators that her daughter was shot in the garage by her father, who mistook her for a burglar.

The audio of the conversation shows both parents’ amazement and grief as they beg with Janae Hairston, 16, to wake up.

She was taken to Mount Carmel East Hospital, but she died an hour later from her injuries.

The issue is being investigated by police, and it is anticipated to be forwarded to the Franklin County Prosecutor’s Office, however it is unclear whether charges will be made.
