The victim’s brother told police he was walking on Young getting ready to cross 14th Avenue when he heard two gunshots and saw an SUV driving away. He said he heard his sister scream and found her shot in the alley, then carried her into the house.
The teen’s mother called 911 reporting her daughter had been shot.
“I think my daughter was shot in the alley,” the mother told dispatchers. “My daughter was in the alley and she just came in and she said she was shot. She is bleeding… she is starting to lose consciousness.”

Reeve said an investigation revealed the girl was shot in her bedroom and pointed to Calhoun as the shooter. He added the teen’s mother told the dispatcher information relayed to her by another person. The incident stemmed from a boyfriend/girlfriend argument, police say.
On Monday, Reeve said detectives believe the shooting was purposeful.
“He (Calhoun) is still running. He hasn’t turned himself in,” Reeve said. “It believe it was a purposful act.”
