18-year-old Tasha Scott is in a critical but stable condition after her father mistook her for an intruder and shot her. Tasha was returning from a secret rendezvous with her boyfriend when she triggered a security light.
Her father, 41-year-old Eric Scott, a police officer, saw a figure in the basement and fired at it. After finding that the 'intruder' was his daughter Eric called 911. No charges have been filed over the incident.
"Mr. Scott was under the impression his daughter had gone to bed for the night. He did not expect his daughter to be outside or down in the basement," said said Capt. Thomas Rodia from the local police.
