    Short of it - Teenage daughter sneaks out. Dad hears her sneaking back in and thinking it's an intruder coming in through the garage door at 3am fires... Daughter survived.

    Va. deputy mistakenly shoots daughter, crashes car
    Deputy sheriff shot his 16-year-old daughter after mistaking her for an intruder, then crashed his car as he rushed her to the hospital

    Associated Press
    snippet:
    Capt. Donnie Lang of the Frederick County Sheriff's Office said a security alarm sounded at about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday at the Winchester home of Easton McDonald, a sergeant with the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office. He said McDonald, responding to the alarm, saw the dark shape of a person advancing through the garage door and fired.

    "He figured someone had broken into the garage, and his family was upstairs asleep," Lang said.

    Armed with his privately owned gun — not his service weapon — McDonald fired, Lang said.

    "Then he hears her voice and recognizes that it's his daughter," he said.
