AKRON, Ohio — Police say an Ohio man shot and wounded his daughter in his home believing she was an intruder.

Akron police say the 22-year-old woman is expected to survive.

The 42-year-old man said he heard someone in his home around 1 a.m. Thursday. Police say he called out to ask who it was but nobody responded. When he saw a shadowy figure in the kitchen, he fired.
