GREENVILLE, S.C. – A 23-year-old woman was mistakenly shot by her father as she got ready to enter her own home in Greenville early Sunday morning, officials say.
Nadeja Jermainequa Pressley was pronounced dead at the scene after she was fatally shot at around 1:15 a.m., the Greenville County Coroner's Office said in a statement.
Pressley's father mistakenly believed she was an intruder when he shot the woman through the door, Greenville County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Jimmy Bolt said in a statement.
An autopsy is planned for Monday, according to the coroner's office.
The sheriff's office's violent crimes unit was still investigating the case, Bolt said.
