The shooting was reported around 4:30 a.m. on  the 5400 block of Piper Ridge Drive.

A 16-year-old Canal Winchester High School junior whom police said was mistaken for an intruder early Wednesday morning was fatally shot by her father.

The shooting was reported on the 5400 block of Piper Ridge Drive, located in the Lehman Meadows subdivision off Gender Road on the city’s Southeast Side. 

Police said they received a call around 4:30 a.m. saying that someone inside the home had shot at what he believed to be someone breaking into the home after the home’s security system was activated.

The 911 call, obtained by The Dispatch, was made by the mother of 16-year-old Janae Hairston, who said the teen had been shot in the garage by her father, who believed she was an intruder. 

Hairston’s father can be heard on the call, which lasts more than eight minutes, distraught and asking what his daughter was doing. Both parents are heard begging for the girl to wake up and asking when police will arrive. Officers arrived on the scene about five minutes after the call was placed.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
