Police for about three hours Thursday searched a Hamilton, Ohio, home where a 14-year-old girl allegedly picked up a gun, loaded it and shot her father, 71-year-old James Ponder, to death.
Police took 14 items from the house, according to court documents.
Seized as evidence were a book bag, an Apple iPhone, one bloody pillow, a high-power 9 mm handgun with a magazine, 9mm shell casings, one gun shooting bag, one Cobra .380 semi-automatic pistol, one soft gun case with two magazines, two tablets, a desktop computer, a spiral notebook and miscellaneous papers.
The girl called 911 on Thursday morning and told the dispatcher, “Can somebody come and put me in handcuffs? I just shot my dad.”
