Dad Charged in Girl's Police Shooting

A father was arrested after his 12-year-old daughter was shot to death by police in Pennsylvania. Even though Ciara Meyer was fatally wounded by officers while they served her father with eviction papers, an investigation cleared constable Clark Steele and said the father, Donald Meyer, was responsible for what happened. Meyer was charged with both homicide and involuntary manslaughter because of his allegedly "reckless" conduct when he pointed a semi-automatic rifle at Steele. District Attorney Andrew Bender said Meyer acted with the knowledge that his daughter was standing behind him, triggering the "chain of events" that led to her death.
