Police Investigate Deadly Shooting in Clinton County

CREATED Feb. 4, 2013

The Clinton County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting that left a 13-year-old girl dead.

Deputies were called to the home in 9200 block of Woodworth Road in Ovid Township just after 4pm Saturday for the report of a shooting.

Deputies say 13-year-old Paige McGinnis was dead from an apparent gunshot wound to the head. Investigators say the victim's 14-year-old brother, Dillan McGinnis, was handling a shotgun in the home that discharged, striking his sister in the head.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday and the investigation remains open pending those results.

Grief counselors for the Ovid Elsie School District were made available to students as they returned to class at Ovid Elsie Middle School and EE Knight Elementary School in Elsie on Monday.
