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

The incident happened just after noon a home in the 12000 block of Amethyst Circle, near Clay Spring Drive and Clay Center Road.

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

The girl was shot in the leg. She was taken to St. Vincent Hospital in good condition.

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.

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.
