Man Indicted For Shooting 12 Year Old Girl In the Face

HUBER HEIGHTS -- A man who shot a 12-year-old girl in the face during a burglary has been indicted.

Bradly Harmon, 21, has been indicted on: 2 counts of felonious assault, 2 counts of  aggravated burglary, grand theft of a firearm, robbery, and tampering with evidence.

Harmon is charged with breaking into the girl's home on Larcomb Drive early in the morning on September 7th.

Prosecutors say he entered her bedroom and shot her in the face at pointblank range, using a stolen gun.

Prosecutor Mat Heck added This defendant shot an innocent 12 year old in her face. Clearly he has no concern for the lives of others and is a dangerous individual.

The defendant is currently being held on a $2,000,000 bond in the Montgomery County Jail. He is set to be arraigned on September 19 at 8:30am.



Earlier coverage:

HUBER HEIGHTS -- Police have arrested a man they say fits the description of the suspect who shot a 12-year-old girl in the face.

Bradley Harmon, 21, faces charges of Felonious Assault, Aggravated Burglary, Tampering with Evidence, Theft of a Firearm, and other gun specifications, according to police.

"The fact that somebody can get into your house and do something like that, and to a little girl, it's been difficult," said Mary Starks, who hasn't been able to sleep, knowing her friends are going through the unthinkable. Their 12-year-old granddaughter was shot in the face while sleeping in her own bed early Saturday morning.

You don't have to hear much of the 911 call to understand the horror.

DISPATCHER: "Somebody broke into your house and shot your granddaughter?"

CALLER: "Came into our house, through the front door and went into her bedroom and shot her."

"She's doing well... I went and saw her Saturday afternoon and she's doing well," Starks said. The girl was able to give police a description - so an officer recognized Harmon along a stretch of Taylorsville Road on Saturday night. He was booked into jail Sunday morning. Police say the victim is friends with someone in Harmon's family.  

"She's a wonderful little girl, very beautiful, I don't understand it, that's the whole thing. I don't understand what his focus was on her," said Starks.

Once neighbors saw the suspect's picture, they recognized him as an acquaintance of the people who used to live across the street from the victim's home.

"How long has he been walking around, watching who, we don't know," Starks said.

Harmon is due in court on Tuesday and is being held on a $2 million bond.



Earlier coverage:

HUBER HEIGHTS -- A 12-year-old girl was improving at Dayton Children's Hospital on Saturday after Police say an intruder shot her in the face while she was asleep.

The shooting happened at 6218 Larcomb Drive around 6:30 Saturday morning.

Huber Heights Police don't believe the attack was random. Investigators say since there was no sign of forced entry, they believe the victim may have known her attacker.

"This is very, very scary to happen in this neighborhood, I don't think I ever heard of anything like this happening," said David Taylor, a neighbor. "Most of the family members were there and nobody even knew the intruder was in there until the shot went off," said Huber Heights Police Sgt. Chris Johnson. "There was another juvenile in the bedroom on the floor and it appears the intruder went right in and knew exactly what to do and where the victim was at, so those are some of our questions, how he knew so much about the house."

Reporter Annette Peagler went to the home and spoke to the victim's great-grandparents. They didn't want to go on camera, but told her they couldn't remember if they locked all of the doors the night before. Neighbors are still shocked and scared. Many say nothing this traumatic has happened in their community.

"I've never had anything like this happen this close to me before so it actually makes me real, real nervous. It can happen anywhere, I guess now and days your neighborhood is not safe anymore no matter where you go," neighbor Amanda Mullins explained. "Always keep your doors and cars locked, you can never be safe enough."

Police are now combing through evidence. A neighbor found a gun holster down the street in one of the yards, but it is not clear if its from the gun used in the shooting.

"We're going to figure out who this is, eventually; it's not a total stranger, somebody knew something", said Sgt. Johnson.

The victim was able to give a brief description of her attacker. He is described as a white man in his early 20s, clean shaven, with short spiked blond hair.

If you have any information about this shooting, please call Huber Heights Police Department at 937-233-1565.
