Pennsylvania authorities have reported that a 12 year old was fatally shot during an eviction in Duncannon during a confrontation between a Pennsylvania constable and the child’s father.

Police report that an escalated argument between the constable and the armed tenant that was being evicted turned deadly when the man allegedly pointed his gun at the uniformed constable, which in return caused the officer the pull out his .40 caliber holstered weapon and shoot the tenant once. The bullet went through the man’s arm and struck his daughter who was standing behind him.

The girl’s father, 57 year old Donald Meyer, flown to Hershey Medical Center with a flesh wound to his arm, is charged with aggravated and simple assault, terroristic threats, and reckless endangering.
