CARMEL, Ind. - A 17-year-old girl was shot during a robbery at a Carmel home Monday, police said.

Police said the girl was home on fall break when a man broke into the house.

"She's such a sweet kid, just a great family, it's real unfortunate," said neighbor Jules Johnson.
Police had established a perimeter in the neighborhood in their search for the suspect.
The sight of police dressed like soldiers with high-powered guns and K-9s drew people from their homes.
"I felt like I was in a movie, I'm like really this is happening in our neighborhood this is weird," Johnson said.
The shooter was described as white, 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and a black mask.
"What we'd like to do is ask anyone who sees anything, who knows anything at all, to give us a call and let us know any information they might have about this circumstance," said Carmel police Officer DJ Schoeff.
Anyone with information is asked to call Carmel police at 317-571-2511.
