AKRON, Ohio – Authorities said a 42-year-old Akron man reportedly mistook his 22-year-old daughter for an intruder early Thursday and shot her.

The daughter reportedly suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the shooting that took place at a house on Onondago Avenue near Brittain Road.

Police said no charges have been filed but the incident remains under investigation.

The father reportedly heard someone in his kitchen just before 1 a.m., prompting him to grab his gun. He reportedly called out but no one responded.

The man reportedly saw a shadowy figure and fired a single shot. But the figure turned out to be his daughter. Investigators did not say where the shot hit the daughter.

Police said the man told investigators that he thought his daughter was house-sitting elsewhere, and did not expect to see her in the house. The daughter was taken to Summa Akron City Hospital for treatment.

In a separate incident, police said armed robbers allegedly robbed two roommates Wednesday evening in their apartment in the city’s University Park neighborhood.

Akron police said the roommates were home about 6 p.m. at their apartment on the 600 block of Brown Street, south of Thornton Street, when they heard a knock at their door.

The victims reportedly answered the door and two gunmen allegedly forced their way inside. The alleged robbers reportedly took video games, their consoles, cash, cell phones and Kyrie Irving sneakers before running from the home.

No one was hurt in the incident. The victims said they recognized one of the robbers and knew him by the nickname “Black” who had been at the apartment earlier in the day smoking marijuana, police said.

Authorities are asking anyone with information about the robbery or its suspects to contact Akron police at 330-375-2552.
