A constable serving an eviction order at a central Pennsylvania apartment fired at an armed tenant but the bullet missed him and fatally struck his 12-year-old daughter, authorities said.

Constable Clark Steele went to the apartment near Duncannon, about 10 miles northwest of Harrisburg, at about 10am Monday to enforce a district judge’s eviction order as the tenant Donald Meyer owed $1,780.85 in back rent and costs, state police said Tuesday.

Meyer, 57, answered the door, closed it, then reopened it and exchanged words briefly with the constable, police said.
