Update: Family of Twelve-Year Old Girl Shot in the Face During Home Invasion Issues Statement
UPDATE: The family of the 12 year old girl who was shot in the face while she slept has issued a statement.
The girl is now back home recovering, while the suspect in the case, Bradley Harmon, 21, is in jail on a $2 million bond.
Here is the statement from the family, who also asked for privacy during this time.
''We would like to extend our gratitude to the Huber Heights Police Department, the First Responders, the Dayton Police K-9 Squad, and the Staff at Children's Hospital. We would also like to extend our thank you's to our church family, and friends and community for all of their prayers and support in our time of need. We thank God for her remarkable improvements and ask that you continue to pray for her throughout her recovery; we can really feel the sense of community from the residents in our area and are very glad to be apart of such a caring and supportive city."
HUBER HEIGHTS -- A 12-year-old girl was improving at Dayton Children's Hospital on Saturday after Police say an intruder shot her in the face while she was asleep.
The shooting happened at 6218 Larcomb Drive around 6:30 Saturday morning.
Huber Heights Police don't believe the attack was random. Investigators say since there was no sign of forced entry, they believe the victim may have known her attacker.
This is very, very scary to happen in this neighborhood, I don't think I ever heard of anything like this happening," said David Taylor, a neighbor.
"Most of the family members were there and nobody even knew the intruder was in there until the shot went off, " Huber Heights Police Sgt. Chris Johnson said. "There was another juvenile in the bedroom on the floor and it appears the intruder went right in and knew exactly what to do and where the victim was at, so those are some of our questions, how he knew so much about the house."
Reporter Annette Peagler went to the home and spoke to the victim's great-grandparents. They didn't want to go on camera, but told her they couldn't remember if they locked all of the doors the night before. Neighbors are still shocked and scared. Many say nothing this traumatic has happened in their community.
"I've never had anything like this happen this close to me before so it actually makes me real, real nervous. It can happen anywhere, I guess now and days your neighborhood is not safe anymore no matter where you go." Amanda Mullins, a neighbor explained. "Always keep your doors and cars locked, you can never be safe enough."
Police are now combing through evidence. A neighbor found a gun holster down the street in one of the yards, but it is not clear if its from the gun used in the shooting.
"We're going to figure out who this is, eventually, it's not a total stranger, somebody knew something", said Sgt. Johnson.
The victim was able to give a brief description of her attacker. He is described as a white man, early twenties, clean shaven, with short spiked blond hair.
If you have any information about this shooting, please call Huber Heights Police Department at (937) 233-1565.
