In a heartbreaking recording of the eight-minute 911 call, the mother and father can be heard begging teenager Janae Hairston to wake up.

“My husband made a mistake and shot her because he thought she was an intruder,” the mother said.

“She’s in our garage and my husband has no idea what’s going on. Oh man.”

Authorities said the mother called 911 after the shooting happened around 4 a.m. in the family’s garage.

Police arrived on the scene at around 4:30 a.m. local time and Hairston was immediately transported to a nearby hospital in a critical condition.

Hairston was pronounced dead at 5:42 a.m., according to one tweet sent by Columbus Police investigators.

Canal Winchester School District says Hairston is a middle school student.

The district has sent out a letter regarding the tragedy.

“The CW Family, We are deeply saddened, we inform our school community, Janae Hairston, a high school student has passed away,” the letter read.

“We send our sincere condolences to her family and our thoughts, prayers and support are with them.”

The Franklin County Prosecutor’s Office is expected to review the case.

No charges have been paid.
