UPDATE: Girl Dies After Shooting in Exeter

EXETER, Pa. -- A girl who was shot at a home in Luzerne County has died, according to state police.

Police were called to the home on Aster Court in Exeter around 3 p.m. Saturday. Troopers say the girl later died at Geisinger Wyoming Valley.

State police along with the Luzerne County District Attorney's Office are investigating. Troopers say they have a juvenile suspect in the shooting. No names or ages have been released.

Neighbors were shocked by the police presence in their quiet neighborhood.

"I just can't believe it. I can't believe it. I mean, it's a very quiet neighborhood. I'm here 13 years. When I tell you nothing like this has ever happened before, nothing, I can't even believe it. I can't believe it," said Georgia Young of Exeter.

An autopsy on the girl is scheduled for Sunday.

    Emily was laid to rest today, Oct 01, 2019. Tomorrow on the Square in Wilkes Barre, there will be a balloon release in her honor. R.I.P. Emily.

    Dark cant tell the difference between an accident, a real shooting crime, and when something is clearly staged. Terrible attempt at trolling the people who do the research outside of CNN and Google, who look at the patterns, look at what the Politian’s are saying and pushing, and actually care about protecting the freedom of everyone in this great country. We refuse to blindly follow the narrative and lick the boots of those who think they control us, you know doing it The American way.
