“Mommy am I Going to Die?” Mom Calls 9-1-1 for Paramedics, Cop Shows Up, Shoots 4-yo Daughter


Columbus, OH — A mother’s attempt to get medical help for a cut on her arm turned into a nightmare after a trigger happy cop showed up. The dramatic 9-1-1 recordings were just published, detailing this insane incident that happened back in June.

The nightmare began after Andrea Ellis had cut her arm on some glass and her sister dialed 9-1-1 for medical help.

“She’s bleeding all over the place!” her sister said in the call. “I need a paramedic!”


As she was on the call, her sister saw a police officer nearby and called him over for help.

“Sir, can you get me a paramedic?! I need a paramedic here!” she said.

According to the report by Inside Edition:

But as the cop approached the house, events took a horrific turn. Cops said the family pet – a boxer-terrier mix named Patches, charged at the officer.

The cop fired his gun, and the bullet hit Andrea’s four-year-old daughter, Ava, in the leg, shattering the bone.

“She asked me several times, ‘Mommy, am I gonna die?'” Andrea Ellis told INSIDE EDITION.

The next 9-1-1 call would come from Ellis’ neighbor to report the cop shooting a child. “My neighbor across the street had an officer at her door and she’s screaming that he shot a child,” said the neighbor.

“They had started to cut her pants off her and I just see blood everywhere,” her mother said, describing the horrific scene.

Luckily, the bullet didn’t hit Ava a few inches higher in the stomach, which could’ve proved fatal. The shot did, however, shatter her bone.

The officer involved has not been disciplined, but the Columbus police department assures the public that the incident is under investigation.

Sadly, police opening fire around innocent children is anything but a rare occurrence. As TFTP previously reported, in 2013, Officer Elias Montoya opened fire on a minivan full of children. Despite initially losing his job, Montoya was hired by another department a short time later.

    Right, the incident is under investigation. The outcome will be that he acted according to police policy and he will suffer no consequences. He will remain on the force so he can shoot another family pet or another child. This is almost always the outcome of an internal investigation.

    If he has not been, I am surprised he has not been shot.. HE as so many cops are more of a danger to society than many criminals. Why is it if a citizen did the same would be charged and the cop is under investigation with no current charged..

    we employ these officers to serve and protect us. it is about time that they be held accountable for deadly force being the first action they take. when we ,the people they are supposed to serve and protect are being harmed by them. something needs to change. when we are afraid to call for help because we end up getting hurt. that is a shame. they should not be allowed to shoot dogs like that. they need to be spraying a non deadly spay at the dogs to deter them. and when children are around in the line of fire they need to not put them in danger. when officers have no thoughts or concerns of children in arms way,that is when we much form accountability board and hold them accountable. people its time we change some laws.
