Third grader doing homework shot inside her Youngstown home

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A third grade student at Williamson Elementary School is in the hospital after being shot inside her family's home early Wednesday.

Kathryn Carter is listed in stable condition after a bullet struck her in the chest as she sat inside the home on East Judson Avenue around midnight.

Carter's father tells police that he heard several gunshots as he and his son were laying on the living room floor, and his daughter was doing school homework at the dining room table.

His daughter cried that she had been hit and was holding her chest.

The father dragged his daughter into the living room to prevent her being hit again.

Officers found two bullet holes through a dining room wall and window. The round that went through the window, struck the back of a chair and went through the girl's chest.

Police searching the back yards of nearby homes found five spent rounds.

Police have not named any suspects in the case.

Youngstown police ask anyone having information about this crime to call Crime Stoppers on it's secure telephone hot line, 330-746-CLUE (2583)
