“A 16-year-old girl is in critical condition today after police say she was shot by her grandfather late Monday night.
“According to Rochester police, officers responded at 10:55 p.m. to a home in the 2400 block of East River Road Northeast, where they were met by a 61-year-old man and his wife.
“The man said the couple had been asleep when they heard a noise outside, the report says. The man grabbed his 9 mm handgun and told his wife to call the police as he went to investigate, according to Rochester Police Capt. Brian Winters.
“The homeowner saw a figure at the back door and fired at least two shots, one of which struck the 16-year-old girl in the upper torso, Winters said. Preliminary reports from medical staff indicate she’ll survive her injuries, he said,” via Post Bulletin.
