HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) - The family of a 12 year old girl shot in the jaw last weekend in Huber Heights released a statement Friday, asking for their privacy and thanking first responders.
"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."
The little girl was shot by a home invader who police say broke into the Larcomb Drive home last Saturday and shot the girl.
The suspect is identified as Bradley Harmon, 21. Police say he knows the family, but they have no motive for why he shot the girl.
She was released from the hospital this week and is recovering at home with her family.
