An autopsy has been set on a 12-year-old Pennsylvania girl who state police believe was accidentally shot by a constable serving her father with an eviction notice.
Police say Ciara Meyer
Bill Stoeffler, a Dauphin County constable who speaks for others in the area, says Meyer is distraught and says it was "absolutely not intentional" that the girl was shot.
The girl's father, 57-year-old Donald Meyer, has been charged with aggravated assault and other crimes for allegedly pointing a loaded rifle at the constable. That's when police say Steele returned fire — the bullet traveling through Meyer's arm and striking his daughter.
The autopsy is Wednesday. The Perry County district attorney is reviewing the shooting.
