No charges have been filed against a Philadelphia father who shot a man who police said was his daughter’s boyfriend when he was caught in her bedroom.
Philadelphia police on Monday responded to a 911 call from a home where a 41-year-old man lived with his 20-year-old daughter.
“Upon police arrival, they found a 32-year-old male who was shot one time in the head,” Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small explained, according to WPVI.
The man, identified as Marc Carrion, later died after being transported to Aria Health Torresdale hospital.
In initial reports, the father had identified the man as an intruder, a struggle ensued and Carrion was shot in head.
But the story changed after police interviewed the daughter. She had claimed that Carrion was her boyfriend.
The father saw the man crouching near his daughter’s bed, told him to get down on the floor while he called 911, WPVI reported. But when Carrion moved, the father fired a single bullet into his head.
A neighbor speaking to the Philadelphia Daily News backed up the daughter’s version of events.
The neighbor, who did not wish to be identified, recalled hearing voices arguing before the gunshot.
“I heard a girl screaming, ‘No, Daddy, no!'” the neighbor said.
“Why did you do that? He was my best friend,” the daughter allegedly told her father.
The neighbor said that “everything got quiet” after that.
Neighbor Gloria Moyett told the Philadelphia Daily News that she wasn’t buying the father’s story.
“He’s a stranger in your house, and you just shoot him in the head?” she asked. “He’s with your daughter, she’s not screaming, and you shoot him just because you don’t know him?”
“This doesn’t add up to me.”
The district attorney was continuing to review the case.

Lawmaker Rashida Tlaib calls for boycott of Bill Maher’s ‘Real Time’ over Israel comments
Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., suggested a boycott against HBO host Bill Maher after he denounced the international movement to boycott Israel as a "bullshit purity test by people who want to appear woke but actually slept through history class."
This article first appeared on Salon.
"Maybe folks should boycott his show," Tlaib wrote in a tweet on Saturday. "I am tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom. This is exactly how they tried to discredit & stop the boycott to stand up against the apartheid in S. Africa. It didn't work then and it won't now."
WATCH: ‘Hero’ walks into middle of Proud Boys protest and says ‘f*ck you’ to each of them
A man became a hero to the internet over the weekend after he was captured on video saying "f*ck you" to members of a group of conservative protesters known as Proud Boys.
In a video that appeared to be from Saturday's protests in Portland, a man can be seen walking into a group of right-wing demonstrators.
"F*ck you," the man says, pointing at an apparent Proud Boys member.
"F*ck you," the man says again as he points at another member of the group.
The man then repeats the process over and over, pointing out a member of the Proud Boys each time. He did make an exception for a dog, which he described as "cool."
