A mother in Ohio will not be charged after she accidentally shot her 18-year-old daughter after seeing her as an intruder when she came home from college to surprise her.

Hannah Jones was shot in the arm by her mother Renee Jones last week when the teenager ran into their house Girard, southeast of Cleveland, trying to surprise her family.

The teenager's mother said she was taken by surprise when her daughter excitedly opened the bedroom door because she was home alone at the time and feared it was an intruder.

Renee fired a single shot from her .38 special revolver with the bullet that hit Hannah just above her elbow.

After an investigation, Girard prosecutor Michael Scala revealed that he would not file a complaint against the mother.

He said that the shooting did not reach the level of a crime due to the nature of the surprise visit and that it took place overnight.

The public prosecutor noted that people were allowed to use reasonable force to protect themselves against intruders in their homes, but warned that the gun should be fired with caution.

Renee, who had a hidden gun license, was desperate when the first responders arrived after the shooting.

The teen's boyfriend called 911 after Hannah screamed when she was hit by the bullet.

Hannah detailed the ordeal in a Facebook message while showing her x-rays and injuries.

& # 39; She had no idea that I was coming and thought someone had broken in to hurt her, and as I ran through the door she was scared of her life and shot me, & # 39; Hannah said.

Hannah said she squatted & let out two screams & # 39; when she realized she had been shot and put pressure on her wound until help arrived.

She waited outside in the driveway with her mother and friend when paramedics arrived.
