911 call from shooting of Rochester granddaughter mistaken as intruder

Posted: Updated:

The 911 call transcript has been released in the shooting of a Rochester girl who was mistaken as an intruder by her grandfather.

Stan Wilkinson, who is an associate pastor at the Rochester Seventh Day Adventist Church, was asleep when he and his wife awoke to a noise outside around 11 p.m. Monday. Wilkinson grabbed his handgun and told his wife to call police as he went to investigate.

Capt. Brian Winters said Wilkinson saw a figure at the back door and fired at least two shots. The figure was actually his 16-year-old granddaughter, who he thought was already inside the house.

The caller, Donna Wilkinson, told the 911 dispatcher, "There was an intruder. My husband thought there was an intruder. Here, it's our granddaughter. She's been shot, Please!"

Wilkinson begs the 911 dispatcher to please save her because the teen is bleeding badly. The victim's grandmother goes on to say her granddaughter was apparently smoking outside before she was shot.

The victim, identified by friends as Paige Wilkinson, is still in critical condition at St. Mary's hospital; however, she is expected to survive.
