EXETER, Pa. -- A girl who was shot at a home in Luzerne County has died, according to state police.

Police were called to the home on Aster Court in Exeter around 3 p.m. Saturday. Troopers say the girl later died at Geisinger Wyoming Valley.

State police along with the Luzerne County District Attorney's Office are investigating. Troopers say they have a juvenile suspect in the shooting. No names or ages have been released.

Neighbors were shocked by the police presence in their quiet neighborhood.

"I just can't believe it. I can't believe it. I mean, it's a very quiet neighborhood. I'm here 13 years. When I tell you nothing like this has ever happened before, nothing, I can't even believe it. I can't believe it," said Georgia Young of Exeter.

An autopsy on the girl is scheduled for Sunday.
