Sheriff’s deputy shoots daughter, wrecks car.
McDonald’s alarm system, another safety precaution, told him the garage had just been opened.
“When he went to go investigate what had set off the alarm, he heard some banging and rustling around in the garage,” said Lang. “At that particular point, he obtained a firearm that he had there in the kitchen area.”
The rustling wasn’t an intruder, but his teenage daughter.
“Later on, it was determined that the daughter had snuck out hours earlier that morning, and was attempting to sneak back into the home,” said Lang.
Lack of visibility in the garage, and the feeling that someone was “coming at him” led McDonald to fire the gun, hitting his daughter in her torso.
